Welcome to the weekend! Celebrate at a Château, enjoy local village parties, hear music at Rotondes, or support show jumpers. Here are our top tips.

1. Hear piano and synths at Rotondes

What: Neo-classical/electronic/piano
Rotondes, 3 Place des Rotondes, 2448 Luxemburg - Google Maps
When: Sunday, 7 August at 8pm - info & tickets

Moritz Fasbender has always been attracted to the obscure: sombre places, dark music and film noir. Her music bends the rules of contemporary classical music or neo-classical. Using the piano as her main instrument, she flirts with electronic sounds and synths in her performances, almost creating a new instrument or sound as a whole. She'll be performing this Sunday at Rotondes at 8pm.

2. Enjoy activities at Bartrenger Duerffest

What: Music, exhibitions, food and more

The medieval festival is one of the annual highlights of Vianden castle. Over the course of nine days (of which this weekend are the last three), more than 100 participants fill the entire castle grounds with medieval life (we got rather excited and took lots of pictures) and ensure a varied programme: knights’ camps, fire and battle shows, jugglers, minstrels and bird-of-prey demonstrations will immerse young and old in a bygone era. In addition to knightly romance, medieval music and juggler fun, visitors can look forward to a wonderful medieval market with handicrafts, calligraphy and all kinds of delicacies.
