Thanks to collectors and donors, the Photography Library is showing pictures of Luxembourg City over the years that were previously unknown to the public. They open new perspectives on the development of the city and its urban life, as well as the remarkable personalities that live within it. At the same time, the Photography Library is launching a call to professional photographers, passionate amateurs and collectors of quality photographs to share any old works they may have with the archives.

3. Hear Squid at Rotondes

What: New wave, post-punk
Rotondes, 3 Place des Rotondes, 2448 Luxemburg - Google Maps
When: Saturday, 13 August at 8pm - info & tickets

For fans of Black Midi, Shame and Yard Act, Squid is a must-see at Rotondes this Saturday. Formed in Brighton, Squid is the brainchild of ​"five young men throwing convention out the window in favour of mad, eclectic, stupidly exciting new noise", according to DIY Mag. Their music can be described as post-punk/experimental rock, and yes, it's so punk to see the drummer trash the kit and stun with his vocals simultaneously.

4. Cycle through the north

What: Vëlosummer 2022
Where: Clervaux or Troisvierges train station - Google Maps
When: Saturday, 13 August - Monday, 15 August between 8am-8pm - more info here

It's cycling summer in Luxembourg, and one of the best areas for this sport is the country's north. Explore the VëloViaNorden route and ride through the municipalities of Kiischpelt, Clervaux, Weiswampach, Ulflingen and Wincrange. The route is around 100km and open to cyclists between 8am and 8pm (buses and residents still permitted on the road, however). If you don't have a bike you can also rent one locally. More info on the route, restaurants and bike rental here.


5. Celebrate Asssumption of Mary in Greiveldange
