The moment we have all been eagerly awaiting has finally arrived: summer is back, with its warm weather, events and festivities that make our capital the lively, vibrant place we have missed so dearly.Building on last year’s summer programme, ‘d’Stad lieft’ is returning with a full, varied line-up that promises to offer something for everyone. In addition to the drive-in cinema, the ‘Theaterplage’ and the neighbourhood fairs that we all enjoyed last year, this year’s programme includes concerts in Mansfeld park in Clausen and at Champ du Glacis, readings in the courtyard of the former Luxembourg National Library, and many other surprises. Take advantage of the sunshine to rediscover the city and its history on a walking tour organised by the Luxembourg City Tourist Office, or a visit to the Lëtzebuerg City Museum and Villa Vauban. This is also the perfect time to explore the Gare Art Festival trail, which show-cases a selection of artworks across 23 locations, from public spaces to shop windows. This year’s art festival runs until 10 September and is the 20th edition of this event, where artists create artwork live in situ at Luxembourg central train station. Head over to the brand-new Place de la Gare, which has been completely redeveloped, for a relaxing drink or a delicious meal with friends at one of the many terraces that are now open again.Keep reading for many more exciting ideas on how to take full advantage of our summer programme, which has been designed to guarantee the safety of visitors during the pandemic.
