Welcome to the weekend! Hear an extraordinary ensemble at Opderschmelz, come say hi at the Bazar, build a robot, forage mushrooms or hear film music.

1. Visit the Bazar International (and come meet us)

What: Annual celebration of cultures
LuxExpo, 10 Circuit de La Foire Internationale, 1347 Luxembourg - Google Maps
When: Friday, 11 November - Sunday, 13 November - times vary, check info

The biggest and best bazar of the year is back! Raising money for 43 charities this year, the Bazar International offers you a tour of the (almost entire) world, with around 60 countries present. Find local delicacies at each stand, hear regional music and performance and find unique handcrafts. To be fair, to most people, it's about trying as much food from around the world as possible within one weekend. 😉 And hey, the RTL Today team will be present as well, so you'll finally meet some of the faces behind these texts. Come say hi!

2. Build your own robot

What: Between ages 7-12
Trifolion, 2 Prte St Willibrord, 6486 Echternach - Google Maps
 Saturday, 12 November at 10am - info & registration

In this workshop, children learn how to build and program robots with a robotics building block system by Robo Wunderkind. This is a great way to get kids excited about technology and science. With this system, robots can be built in a matter of minutes, whether that's a magic torch, a traffic light or a racing car. The main language of the workshop is German, but the teacher/instructor may speak English as well.


3. Hear Lord of the Rings, Hans Zimmer or both

What: Film music at its best
Rockhal, 5 Av. du Rock'n'Roll, 4083 Esch-sur-Alzette - Google Maps
When: Sunday, 13 November at 2pm and 7pm - more info & tickets

Rockhal is all about film music on Sunday (and the legend Sting is playing Saturday, but that show is sold out). Film music truly is some of the most magical form of music out there, full of thick orchestras, killer melodies and guaranteed to pull you through a roller coaster ride of emotions. At 2pm, hear Lord of the Rings, R. R. Tolkien's masterpiece, live in concert with orchestra, choir and the Tolkien Ensemble. In the evening at 7pm you can hear the music by legendary composer Hans Zimmer, who scored The Lion King, Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator, The Dark Knight, Man of Steel, Inception and Interstellar. What an icon. Grab your tickets on Rockhal's website. Impressed if you go to both!
