Launch of the new tourist season 2016

From 25 to 26 March the Luxembourg City Tourist Office invites to 'Explore Luxembourg' on the Place d'Armes

Le LCTO annonce le lancement de la saison touristique 2016The weather is gradually getting better, the sun comes out more often and the capital starts to get crowded with tourists: these elements are part of the things that announce spring and thus also the new tourist season 2016. It's on the occasion of the launch of the new tourist season 2016 that the Luxembourg City Tourist Office (LCTO) invites the public on 25 to 26 March to 'Explore Luxembourg', two days of discovery of the Grand Duchy's tourist regions on the Place d'Armes in the city centre.

During two days, the 'living room of the city' transforms itself into a 'mini tourist Grand Duchy', gathering stands of the regional tourist offices and of the regional actors in the field of tourism. Animations, Luxembourgish concerts and the discovery of local products complete the tourist information and punctuate Good Friday and Holy Saturday. Thus, the tourist season 2016 starts with an 100% Luxembourg scene setting.

The aim of these discovery days are to encourage the public to acknowledge local tourism and to discover the regions of the Grand Duchy, as well as their attractions and tourist features. The capital offers some twenty tours and most of the visitors particularly appreciate the fortress and the Bock Casemates, classed as UNESCO World Heritage.

In the Luxembourg Ardennes you can dive into the rich natural and cultural heritage, where you can visit many castles.

The amateurs of wine and sparkling wine and those who like to be surrounded by water will be pleased by the conviviality of the Luxembourg Moselle.

The hikers and climbers will be delighted by the huge rocks and wild forests of the Mullerthal Region – Luxembourg's Little Switzerland. The abbey town of Echternach attracts thousands of visitors.

The South offers an industrial heritage in the midst of an historical renewed mining basin. Amongst the jewels of the region Lëtzebuerg West figures the Valley of the Seven Castles.
