There are over 200 concerts taking place during the Winterlights festival.
There’ll be animations, DJ sets, and shows taking place at venues across the city including the Christmas markets.

Knuedler on ice – ice skating rink
A highlight of Winterlights would have to be this enormous ice skating rink (500 m2) set up at Place Guillaume.
Fun for young and old!
Christmas Markets in Luxembourg
You’ll find Christmas Markets at Place de la Constitution, Place d’Armes, Place de Paris, Puits-Rouge and a gourmet market in the Grund.
Christmas decorations, crafts, jewellery, candles and many other products are on offer at the beautifully decorated Christmas chalets.
There are also plenty of gastronomic pleasures to tempt and delight the visitor: snails, cheese gratin, sausages, and Luxembourgian cuisine such as Gromperekichelcher (potato fritter).
Make sure you imbibe in a special Christmas beer or a mulled wine while you are there.
A new feature at Winterlights is Pierre Bardet’s blue tree at Place Guillaume II.
Standing at 8.5 metres, the tree is covered in sparkling blue lights making it a wondrous focal point.
