Welcome to the weekend! Check out the open air cinema, see live music at Mansfeld Parc, go to an oldtimer gathering or head over to museum events.
1. Watch open air films outside Grand Ducal Palace
The outdoor cinema in Luxembourg City opens its "doors" this weekend to 500 guests each night, who get to experience mainstream films, both contemporary and classic, as well as cult movies and cinematic masterpieces on a big screen in a splendid outdoor setting. The programme runs for 8 days until 30 July, with screenings every night at 9.30pm.
This weekend's selection includes Death on the Nile, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot.
2. Hear Klanbuer - Mansfeld Sessions
What: Varying music evenings
Where: Parc Mansfeld, All. Pierre de Mansfeld, 2118 Luxembourg - Google Maps
When: Friday, 22 July until Sunday, 31 July - full programme here
International acts from all genres are flocking to Mansfeld Park in Luxembourg City this late July, putting up a great programme of concerts. On Friday, Choco y sus Complices and Cimafunk are sharing the stage for a Latin American night, followed by the Electroacoustic Exploration Night on Saturday with Plastiklova and Binkbeats. All free shows - what an opportunity!
3. View oldtimer collection at Fond-de-Gras
If you're into oldtimers and classic cars, the Vieille Carrosserie Day is not to be missed. This Sunday at 11am, over 130 cars from before 1970, pampered by collectors from all over the Greater Region, gather at Le Fond-de-Gras. There's musical entertainment, a delicious summer grill buffet, and of course plenty of machinery to explore. The legendary Train 1900 is also departing from that area, as well as the mining train.
4. Attend Mudam opens up to Autism
Together with the Fondation Autisme Luxembourg, Mudam offers a workshop for people living with autism on one Saturday per month. Participants will visit the exhibitions and end with an interactive workshop. The workshop is specifically designed for people accommodated by the FAL. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or +352 45 37 85–531 to reserve a slot.
5. Get tickets to Congés Annulés
While Rotondes' summer festival only kicks off next week, it's already smart to get some tickets to shows. Congés Annulés (which literally means 'Holidays cancelled') is the happening in Luxembourg in August, a month when the rest of the live music business tends to take a well-deserved break. But not at Rotondes! Expect loads of live music, afterwork DJ sets and a great outdoor bar and food truck. Great for throughout the week or on weekends.
6. Hear Sunday morning jazz
The Sunday morning jazz programme on offer at Neimenster is a lovely, calm way to start off the second half of your weekend. On the programme this week is singer Brigitte Beraha along with her band, Lucid Dreamers. Born in Italy but growing up in France, she later became known in the UK music scene. This gig, which is part of a UK tour and European tour, celebrates the release of two albums to date, the latest 'Blink' being released on May 20, 2022. The original music – with or without lyrics – is both melodic and abstract. She draws inspiration from the worlds of jazz, folk, contemporary classical, free improvisation and electronica, with atmospheric and open improvisations and exciting grooves.
7. Take a tour of the Philharmonie
The Philharmonie invites you to guided tours that lead beyond the areas usually accessible to the public. Learn about the building's architecture, see the different concert rooms, sneak backstage and, if you're lucky, catch a glimpse of a rehearsal. The languages of the guided tours are announced beforehand, but they may also be adapted to visitors’ needs at the beginning of the tour.
