LUXEMBOURG

Location:
Luxembourg

(30 Nov - 24 Dec 2012)



During the weeks before Christmas, markets flourish all over the country. From wooden huts that are set up on town and city squares, all sorts of Christmassy goods are on sale: locally produced arts and crafts (candles, Christmas trees and decorations, cribs, music, etc), and of course plenty of food and drink to warm you from the inside. The latter include the obligatory mulled wines, as well as the stronger stuff (eg Schnaps, known as Drëpp). Foods on sale include various soups (with or without Mettwurscht [a local sausage speciality]), pancakes, Lëtzebuerger Grillwurscht ... , plus the unpronounceable: "Gromperekichelcher". The bandstand in the centre of the square is also very much in use: A whole host of local bands, fanfares and choirs are performing, bringing to life the true Christmas atmosphere.

Good buys: Be sure to try the pastries and beer.

Local dishes: Luxembourg's cuisine is similar to that of Belgium's Wallonia region - plenty of pork, fish and game - but also features some heavy German influence in local specialties like liver dumplings with sauerkraut. Its beer (like that of neighbouring Belgium) is not too shabby; neither are the Moselle Valley's fruity white wines.

Interesting fact: Luxembourg has more Michelin stars per kilometre than anywhere else in the world.
