Celebrations of the National Day of Luxembourg


Luxembourg City on Sunday evening celebrated the Grand Duke’s official birthday with a spectacular firework and the traditional torch-lit parade earlier in the evening. Dozens of local clubs and associations took part in the parade, which started in Boulevard de la Pétrusse this year and proceeded down Avenue de la Liberté towards the Gare. With construction works on Place Guillaume II and several other spots in the City centre this alternative route proved just as well and the Grand Ducal family watch the spectacle from a podium near the former Arbed building.
