This weekend we'll say goodbye to Winter and will be welcoming Spring with the traditional Buergbrennen. This event typical for Luxembourg and the greater region will be celebrated in quite a few villages. The local clubs organise the construction of the "Buerg" made out of wood, hay and old Christmas trees and also cater the visitors with food and beverages. A great tradition that shouldn't be missed!
