Welcome to the weekend! Summer is here, which means plenty of music options! There's also a bike market, street skating, pride month and more.
1. See street skating tricks
Skaters are taking over Luxembourg City this weekend at LXB Street! Skaters will perform tricks over rails, ledges, staircases, and other obstacles typically found on streets. The competitors will perform tricks and be judged based up their ability and style. A team of 5 international expert judges will assess the performance based on the routine but the crowd reaction will also weigh heavily.
But, nearly EVEN cooler: RTL Today Radio will be there playing cornhole, and you can speak to the team! RTL Today Radio interviewed chief organiser Tom Jungbluth, who sat down with Steps and Meredith (who are covering for our holidaying morning host Sam Steen) to chat about the event.
2. Hear Kinnekswiss concerts
What: Musical highlight in July
Where: Kinnekswiss, 29 Av. de la Porte-Neuve, 2227 Luxembourg - Google Maps
When: Saturday, 9 July at 9pm and Sunday, 10 July from 11am - more info here
Summer in the city means open air concerts on the Kinnekswiss! The Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra and Chamber Choir are kicking Saturday's programme off with a repertoire of Verdi, while on Sunday the Junior Harmony Orchestra and various groups of the conservatory will take to the stage throughout the afternoon. Bring a picnic along, head to the park and make yourselves comfortable.
3. Build your own mini airplane
Many kids are fascinated with planes (well, so are adults!), so this workshop focuses on the basic principles of flight. The group will be tinkering with a model glider as well as a propeller plane. Of course participants can bring the planes home after. Prior registration required.
4. Celebrate Pride
What: Cherishing our diversity
Where: Various places, see article below
When: Times vary
This year’s Pride Month celebration in Luxembourg offers a wide variety of exciting activities and events for the LGBTQ+ community and allies alike. Most of the festivities were and are set to happen in Esch-sur-Alzette between the 1st and the 10th of July. We're nearing the end of that period now, but there's still excellent opportunities to head out there and join in.
Our editor Natalia has an extensive overview of what's on!
5. Marvel at the Night of Wonders
Bettembourg's Night of Wonders is a unique experience. The event brings together artists, magicians and fantasy characters in a mystery park, which lights up beautifully come sunset. Unfortunately Saturday is already sold out, but there's still a lovely programme on Friday evening. Entry is free, but your paid registration ticket can be switched into a food/drink voucher upon arrival.
6. Roll down to WeRide at Rotondes
So you want a new two-wheeler? Do you want to sell the bikes, mountain bikes or BMXs lying around your house? For two days, the second-hand bike market is the place to be for selling or purchasing your bike.
To carry out a first check-up of your new bike, to restore it or make adjustments and/or small repairs, the young start-up The Happy Cyclist was invited to take charge of the Repair Café. This company promotes the repair and reuse of bicycle materials in order to avoid the purchase of new products. Roll on down!
7. Hear jazz & blues in Merscheid
Jazz and blues lovers unite - four top-notch acts are performing at the Liewenshaff on Friday evening, ranging from a repertoire of jazz standards to improv jazz, high-energy blues and 60s groove blues and boogie. Tickets are €15 at the door, really not much for such a solid line-up of professional acts.
