4. See charity polo tournament
The Roude Leiw Polo Club is hosting the first ever Fundraising Polo Tournament for the Order of Malta Luxembourg, which aims to raise money for people in Luxembourg without a home or who require medical attention. All proceeds from the tournament will go to the Order. Join the teams for two days of fun games, and while entrance is free, attendees can partake in a tombola, a silent auction, food and drinks.
5. Watch Top Gun: Maverick
Could we possibly write up a list of must-see movies without mentioning this one? Impossible. Top Gun: Maverick is one of the biggest blockbuster releases of the last decade, an action thriller of serious quality. After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (played by Tom Cruise) is back to train a new generation of fighter pilots. But the ways of combat have significantly changed, and Maverick is put to the test. Just let the trailer do the talking...
6. Play 17 pianos across Luxembourg City
What: My Urban Piano
Where: Across Luxembourg City
When: Until 19 June - more info here
As part of My Urban Piano, public pianos are set up all over the city: anyone can sit down and play a tune.
