What to Do in Luxembourg in Winter 2019

Luxembourg is a tiny country nestled amongst castles and gorges. It can get very cold in the winter, with temperatures averaging in the low 30s. However, this turns the country into a winter wonderland as the snow settles on the classic European architecture. Around Christmas there are several markets to explore, and though you might expect slower months after the New Year, this small country might surprise you. The Escapardenee Lee Trail is quite stunning in the winter. Its 33 miles containing fairy tale-like scenery and surprises, including an isolated church in the woods. Winter sports fans can head to Baraque de Fraiture, featuring slopes for skiing and snowboarding. There are some interesting festivals in the winter months. In the New Year there are festivals between February and March, such as Liichtmėssdag, filled with music, food stalls, ales and much more. There are also several Carnival parades in cities throughout the country at the start of March, as well as Bonfire Day where a cross is set on fire to burn away winter. If you plan to go skiing or partake in other winter sports, rent an SUV and ask about the availability of a ski rack.
