People's feelings about Halloween vary widely – some cherish it, while others might not be as enthusiastic, and then there are those who love to hate it.

Over the past few years, Halloween events in and around Luxembourg, as well as the local tradition of "Trauliicht", have noticeably improved in terms of quality and popularity. What's heartening to see is the growing effort to intertwine these festivities with local traditions, legends, and fairytales, all of which contribute positively to enriching the experiences of children and nurturing their joyful childhoods. As I contemplated whether "Halloweenmania Part 1" should exclusively spotlight Luxembourg or cast a wider net, I decided to commence with the exploration of the French Moselle region. Meanwhile, I eagerly await the announcements from the fantastic venues, creative minds, and the array of small and large local businesses in Luxembourg, all of whom are sure to offer exciting events.

Remember, this is just the beginning of Halloweenmania.

As always, embrace the spirit and embark on this journey with Let'z TravelmatKanner, with a touch of BOO!!

All Halloween events in the French Moselle region are conveniently listed on a centralized website where you can access event details and make reservations directly. This website also provides contact information, including email addresses and phone numbers, allowing you to easily secure your spot for the events you're interested in: The Festival of Monsters and Witches is taking place from October 21st to November 5th.
