Schueberfouer 2022 at Glacis

This one needs no introduction! The biggest fair in Luxembourg is back in its original format from 19 August 2022 until 07 September 2022, after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. If you've missed the bright lights, thrilling rides and tasty fairground snacks, you won't want to miss this. Perfect for a classic and traditional Luxembourgish afternoon (or indeed, evening) out.

This unique event will run from 24 September 2022 to 25 September 2022 at Fond de Gras, offering visitors a look back in time with its Victorian-style market and steampunk creations. Browse the artisan products on offer, or take in one of the musical and artistic performances.

Festival des Marionnettes Sauvages
