After the Remerschen "Baggerweier" ponds reopened this week, the Upper-Sûre lake's beaches are also set to open once more this weekend. The same holds true for various tourist attractions across the country.

Good news for tourists and residents staying at home over the Pentecost weekend and holidays - after a long quarantine, more tourist attractions are set to reopen.

Vianden Castle reopened to visitors on Friday, with hygiene measures in place. The castle is one of the country's top three tourist attractions, alongside the capital's Casemates and Bettembourg Park. The chairlift leading from the town to the castle will also reopen on Saturday, offering stunning views of the surrounding area.

For those seeking to explore the capital, Tom Bellion, director at the Luxembourg City Tourist Office, suggested visiting the market, parks and museums, although the latter are subject to restrictions. The HopOn-HopOFF tourist bus service starts running again this Saturday, as will the Pétrusse express tourist train, again with hygiene measures. Cycling tours are on offer thanks to Velosophie.

However, the Casemates are not yet open, although Bellion said this was a work in progress. Other walking tours around the city are available, such as Wenzel, Vauban and City Promenade Kids.

In the north of the country, Clervaux Castle has reopened its museums and the Edward Steichen "The Family of Man" photography exhibition is once more open to the public.

In the south, the Parc Merveilleux in Bettembourg will remain closed at present due to the number of playgrounds within.

For those seeking to make the most of the sunshine, outdoor swimming areas in Remerschen reopened this week to limited numbers of visitors. Barbecues are not allowed onsite.

The ever-popular Upper-Sûre lake opened up its beaches to visitors this weekend from 9am on Saturday - however, access will again be limited due to Covid-19 measures.

Finally, families looking to entertain their children will be pleased to know that the Esch-sur-Alzette animal park has reopened, although the play areas will remain closed.
