Luxembourg City Tour

The hiking group welcome members to join us for a stroll around Luxembourg City to discover:-

The lives of legendary women of Luxembourg

From working women and nobility, to the unholy and the saintly – the historic development of the City of Luxembourg is inextricably intertwined with the history of women. This city walk provides some interesting information while following not only the traces of the first female sovereigns and rulers, but also the first women to be elected in politics.

This tour, starting at the Luxembourg City Tourist Office, led by one of their guides, will cover approximately 5km within the city and take up to 2 hours. There is a fee of between 5-7€ depending upon numbers, which will be collected on the day.

After, we shall adjourn to the Christmas market for a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate.

To register please email chair@blc.lu or treasurer@.lu

Visit to ‘Am Tunnel’

We are organising a visit to the Spuerkeess Contemporary Art Gallery ‘Am Tunnel’. The Am Tunnel is 15 metres underground and some 350 metres long. In addition to temporary exhibitions, there is a permanent exhibition of the work of world-famous photographer Edward Steichen.

Currently there is an exhibition by the photographer Christophe Van Biesen, a Belgian photographer and artist, of his landscapes of Luxembourg and from his many trips all over the world called ‘Home and Away’.

Arriving in Luxembourg in 2008, he developed a speciality in photographing the natural and urban landscapes of his adopted country. Over the course of his many travels around the globe, the artist has also been able to take a series of photographs depicting landscapes and cities abroad. The varied aesthetic of these landscapes aims to highlight our planet’s diversity and beauty: from the vast landscapes of the North American continent to Asian megacities, via Iceland, France, Italy and numerous other destinations; without of course forgetting Belgium, the artist’s birthplace.

It will appeal to all travellers and landscape photography enthusiasts and is at once dreamy, exciting, impressive and inspiring. Beyond the photographs, the artist also seeks to convey a message that is dear to him. In a world that is opening up more and more, we, as travellers, must take responsibilities by reducing our ecological footprint. Sustainable tourism is key to preserving our planet for the future generations.

We will have a guided tour of this exhibition by Christophe himself. This will take place on Wednesday March 25th at 11am. We will meet at 10.45am to ensure that the tour starts on time.

This guided tour is free, but we do need to provide numbers, so please register with Clare at events@blc.lu if you would love to  join us.

Discover the current exhibition shown at the Contemporary Art Gallery “Am Tunnel” at www.bcee.lu, section “Discover BCEE”.
