In the absence of the Christmas market, the ice rink and the "Winterlights", the City of Luxembourg has put the finishing touches to its new winter decor, installing 65 km of garlands.
There is an impressive 12-metre long heart-shaped arch on the Place d'Armes, a 10-metre high 'royal pine tree' on place Hamilius, and luminous 'Péckvillercher' on rue Sigefroi.
In order to brighten up the end of year that has been affected by the coronavirus, the City of Luxembourg has decided to illuminate its main arteries and squares at the end of 2020. For example, the newly planted trees along the tram route on Avenue de la Liberté are garlanded with thousands of fireflies.
Lydie Polfer, the mayor of Luxembourg, lit an electric wire of 65 km of garlands at 5 pm on Friday. It was placed on trees, suspended, and placed on the ground.
The capital will immersed for 51 days in a festive and winter atmosphere. From 20 November 2020 until 10 January 2021, the garlands will be lit every day from 6 am to midnight to spread a warm atmosphere throughout the day.
Please note that on Sundays, 22 and 29 November, as well as on 6, 13, and 20, December 2020, shops in the capital will be open from 2 pm to 6 pm.
