You don’t have to spend the Christmas holidays glued to the TV or going stir crazy at home, there’s plenty to do in Luxembourg over the festive period.
Winterlights might be closed on Christmas eve and day, but there are places to sup a glühwein, and concerts to get you in the mood. Try your hand at a rap workshop, a virtual reality visit to the Paris Ball, some disc golf or a dinner in the dark.
It’s your last chance to see two art exhibitions, or if you’re looking for family friendly workshops or a ladies’ night, we’ve got you covered. But if you want to party, party, party, you can even do that on Christmas Day. Here’s our list of 13 things to do in the festive holidays.

The Philharmonie Christmas concert on the same date is fully booked, but there are seats available for the winter spectacle for children on 18 December. There will be traditional carols at the Notre Dame Cathedral (and the restored organ has returned too), on 18 December at 16.00.
Voices International invite you to enjoy the Sound of Christmas at concerts in Esch-sur-Alzette (17 December) and Bridel (18 December), whilst The Christmas Tree Singers will give a concert on 18 December at 17.00 at the cultural centre in Helmdange. If you don’t have time to catch a concert before the big day, then the Singing Ladies of Mondercange will be performing at the local cultural centre on 26 December.
