Less of a parade and more of a party, Carnival in Differdange is a 3-day affair with something for hardcore party-goers and families alike. Friday night is a party for adults, then the main Clochard’s-bal is on the Saturday starting at 9pm with the Mini-Clochard’s bal for the family from 3pm to 6pm on the Sunday. One of the more expensive balls, but also one of the most fun. Hurry and buy your Clochard’s-bal tickets in presale for 10 euros or buy them at the evening ticket office once you get there for 15 euros.

  • Don’t miss if: you want to nurse your hangover in the comfort of your home on Sunday, rather than at work on Monday.

Where: All events take place in the centre of Differdange.
When: February 23rd-25th

Remich has a great procession and the price of the ticket is well worth it (particularly if you win the tombola!) What makes Remich so special is that they follow the Luxembourg traditions from beginning to end in a unique way; from the Stréimännchen (the burning of a male doll, hung from the bridge in Remich that connects Luxembourg and Germany as a symbol of chasing away winter) on February 14th through to the Buergbrennen (bonfire) on February 17th. The culmination is that much more special when you’ve been part of every festivity in the town.

  • Don’t miss if: you want to participate in all of Luxembourg’s Lent festivities in one historic town.

Where: Departs from the Route du Luxembourg at the top of Remich; then winds through the town and ends at the Pavillon St Remy.
When: March 10th, 14:30


The annual carnival celebration in Pétange is called the Karneval Gemeng Péiteng – or in short: Kagepe (KaGePe). If you like it big, with a bit of history attached, this cavalcade is the one for you; it’s the oldest and largest carnival parade in the country. As such, it attracts a great crowd (over 30,000 last year) of both internationals and locals with its vibrant funky program and after-party.

  • Don’t miss if: you want to sound truly local; ‘Yeah, I’m going to the Kagepe this weekend, baby.’

Where: Place du Marché
When: February 23rd. The parade starts at 14:11. Animations and fun start early – we’d recommend you hit Pétange at least an hour early.

Cheer it on and then get ready for the after-party – you’ll find the adrenaline keeps you going.

  • Don’t miss if: you want to experience a whole long weekend of partying.Where: Place de l’Hôtel de Ville, L-4011 Esch-sur-Alzette. Parade goes via Place Victor Hugo, Rue Victor Hugo, Rue du Nord, Rue du Canal, Rue du Brill, Rue de l’Alzette & Place de l’Hôtel de Ville

  • Nonnefäscht (nuns’ farts) — doughnuts sprinkled with icing sugar,
  • Täertelcher — doughnuts,
  • Maisercher — mouse-shaped donuts, and
  • Stretzegebäck — small cakes made of pastry that is scalded before being baked.
