If you're still looking to recover from Wednesday and Thursday's festivities, try out some of the relaxed events on offer this weekend.
1. Get last tickets to Siren's Call Festival

Taking place at the wonderful Neimenster Abbey in the Grund, the family-friendly event hosts The Hives, Nothing But Thieves, Fishbach, Josin, June Road, The Clockworks and much more this year. Kids below 10 are free.
2. Go on a sound walk in Esch

Have you ever taken a walk through a city centre, and actively listened to the urban sounds around you? This sound experience walk will draw your attention to surfaces, materials, architecture, landscapes and people, and how they contribute to the sound and identity of a city. Three routes have been chosen by sound urbanist Trond Maag and sound architect Andres Bosshard to discover the art of sound walking. You can download the guides here.

Whether you're a passionate food lover, a professional chef or hobby cook, this gathering brings people from all backgrounds and generations together. Head down to Remich and bon appetit!
4. Take in photography exhibition on past and present of Iran
Alfred Seiland, a well-known Austrian photographer, is exhibiting 60 photographs from his Iran series, which he began in 2017. Similar to his previous project, Iran Between Times draws on the interplay between past and present and the ways in which people relate to it. The selection encompasses landscape photographs, illustrating the rich and complex history of Iran, as well as photographs of unadulterated scenes from everyday Iranian life. With this project, the photographer aims to challenge the viewer to critically think about how Western media oftentimes fail to represent an unprejudiced and unbiased view of the former Persian Empire, and to reflect at the same time on the major socio-political topics that are at the forefront of Iran's society today.
Tip: A program of educational events is planned alongside the exhibition, including workshops, themed tours and a lecture series. Check out the agenda online.

5. See Elvis
In this brand-new biopic, Elvis Presley rises to fame in the 1950s while maintaining a complex relationship with his manager, Colonel Tom Parker. The Man. The Legend. The King of Rock & Roll. A great summer movie.
6. Visit the art and leisure market in Walferdange
What: Hobby artists unite
Where: Hall Omnisports Walferdange, 15 Rue des Nations Unies, 7270 Walferdange - Google Maps

It's already the 8th time that Walferdange hosts an annual art and leisure market, attracting artists from all over the country. Events and animations are being organised for children as well, and refreshment offers have been taken care of.
7. Run the Widdebierglaf in Mensdorf
The Widdebierg is somewhat the highest hill in the area of Roodt-Syr and Mensdorf (386m) actually making it quite a challenging run. Register on site on Saturday at around 15:30, and run either 10km or 5km. There's also a shorter 1,5km run for kids. And luckily the run is in the later afternoon/evening, so you burn less in the sun...
