'Konscht am Gronn' - discover art in a thousand-year-old part of the city

Every first Sunday in the month, from May until October, don't miss a chance to discover and buy open-air art

"Konscht am Gronn", une traditionFrom 1 May to 2 October, the Rue Münster in the heart of the Grund district in Luxembourg City is turned into a huge open-air exhibition venue once a month. It's nothing new; in fact, it's really quite a tradition: 'Konscht am Gronn' (Art in the Grund) has been in existence since 2006. It's always worth taking a look!

For some time now, once spring arrives, Luxembourg City is full of people on the first Sunday in the month. City centre shops are open in the afternoon, there is an all-day second-hand market at the Knuedler, and there is 'Konscht am Gronn', all attracting thousands of people. It's not surprising, given that these three events also provide an opportunity to take a stroll in the city centre.

About thirty artists, of a dozen different nationalities

'Konscht am Gronn' has rapidly become a must-see event in Luxembourg City's cultural calendar. Even just the location is worth a relaxed stroll on a Sunday, or a visit before or after a drink with friends in one of the many cafés - as a result, there are between 1,200 and 1,500 visitors there on a Sunday.

As every year, about thirty artists of a dozen different nationalities will be exhibiting their most recent works and offering them for sale, all in friendly surroundings; the range of works is very varied - paintings and photographs, works using glass, wood, stone and various metals, and even digital art. The works are displayed in the open air from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., which makes it easy to meet the artists and watch them at work.

A different band is scheduled to play on each of the Sundays, starting at 2.30 in the afternoon.
