Almost in the patron saint's day

Dear all

Our Lady of Luxembourg, Comforter of the Afflicted will be celebrated the 17th of May. Pilgrims from all over the country will come to the cathedral. 

As you can see the cathedral is almost ready:

And around the cathedral, in Knuedler, there is a market until the 13th of May with many places where one can grab a hamburger, sausages, waffles or some champagne, as well as some places for kids and candy shops.

The city is getting ready too hit the ground running on Our Lady's day. Indeed there are many events like the annual duck race, which takes place on the Petrusse river, which flows into Alzette and has charity purposes.

Here there are some pics of this year's race.

Additionally, the "mini-train" is working now for all people's entertainment. You can see a couple of pics below...

Last Sunday, just after the race I walked all the valley, the city walls and the Grund district again. In Spring it looks fantastic.

Take care!
