2. Hear Turkish psychedelic folk at Kulturfabrik
What: Altin Gün
Where: Kulturfabrik, 116, rue de Luxembourg, 4211 Esch-sur-Alzette
When: Sunday, 5 December at 8pm - info & tickets
Altin Gün means "Golden Day" in Turkish, and it's the best way to describe how the band wants to make you feel when you listen to their poetic music, beautifully crafted with a hint of modern and traditional sounds. Their new record firmly establishes the band, based out of Amsterdam, as masterful interpreters of the Anatolian rock and folk legacy, and as a leading voice in the emergent global psych scene. They were supposed to come to Luxembourg a while back, but now it's finally happening!
3. See screening of inspiring documentary Bigger Than Us
What: Volunteering film
Where: Cine Utopia, 16 Av. de la Faiencerie, 1510 Luxembourg
When: Sunday, 5 December at 4pm - info & tickets
The wonderful Katie over at Iles de Paix reached out to us about this one. On the occasion of International Volunteer Day, ten Luxembourg NGOs invite you to a special screening of the documentary "Bigger Than Us" at Ciné Utopia. They hope to motivate people to take action themselves and participate in the change that is happening around us in everyday life. After the film you will have the opportunity to get to know the NGOs and the various forms of volunteering work, and take part in a debate. For the 12th time, the organisers are taking the audience on a trip around the world. The documentary "Bigger Than Us", follows the journey of seven young people, living in in seven different countries, who are all committed to a build a fairer future, each in their own way.

5. Go wine tasting while enjoying lit-up vineyards
What: Wine Lights Enjoy
Where: Start in Wormeldange
When: Friday, 3 December and Saturday, 4 December between 5pm-11pm - info & tickets
This is a nice twist to regular wine tasting - while walking from Wormeldange to Ahn (4,5km), visitors get to stop every once in a while to taste 15 different wines from the area, as well as enjoy food trucks and other stands. The event takes place between 5pm-11pm, so organisers have lit up the hills of the vineyards to give them a magical appearance. So head on out on these chilly evenings for a wonderful wine & walk date with your loved one(s)! There is also a free shuttle bus between Ehnen, Wormeldange, Ahn and Grevenmacher, as well as between Dreiborn, Wormeldange and Ahn.

When: Sunday, 5 December at 3.30pm - info & tickets
The puppet theatry house Poppespënnchen in Lasauvage (the first of such kind in Luxembourg) welcomes you to a German performance of "Lebkuchenherz" (gingerbread heart). Despite the Christmas hustle and bustle and busy bakeries, little Minchen is sad. He would love to have a gingerbread heart, but his grandfather cannot grant him his humble wish. He lost a big bag of money in the dark forest, which is nestled with danger...Minchen can call himself lucky that the young audience is going to help him on his quest so he can celebrate a wonderful Christmas in time!
