Spending June in the great outdoors

Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes the irresistible urge to spend time outdoors. We here at the City strive to meet the needs of our citizens, and so I am delighted to showcase some of the outside activities, events and projects that we will be offering in June.

In terms of culture and entertainment, we have a vast and varied programme in store for you all the way into the autumn. The 2022 season will kick off well before National Day, with various events for young people, such as the Intra-Urban Youth Festival, as well as a number of music events, including the Concerts de midi and My Urban Piano. Another series of events will be launched on 22 June, including City Sounds – Glacis in Concert and Kiermes wéi fréier at Kinnekswiss.

With such a busy event schedule in June, there is something for everyone! Read on to find that ‘don’t-miss’ event for you.

With warmer days ahead, it’s also the perfect time to check out the city’s many markets and playgrounds.

In this month’s City magazine, we are showcasing six markets and eight playgrounds in Luxembourg City to give you an idea of what’s out there waiting to be discovered, as well as practical information to help you plan ahead.

But the city has even more to offer in terms of outdoor entertainment with its many green spaces, parks and forests. I am thrilled to announce that progress on the Ban de Gasperich park project is going well and according to schedule, and that it should be completed on time for the spring of 2023. Read on to find out more about this project, its current status and upcoming phases, as well as the main features of this giant recreational space, which – with its impressive 16 hectares – will become the capital’s green lung in the city’s south end.

Happy reading!
