Guided tours:

On the occasion of Saint Nicholas' Day, undoubtedly the most important children's day, the Luxembourg City Tourist Office (LCTO) has put together a special programme for children aged 6 and over (and their parents). On 4, 5 and 6 December, they can take part in a "City Promenade for kids", a guided tour in the form of a treasure hunt combining the discovery of the capital with the legend of Mélusine. At the end of the tour, each child will receive a traditional "Tiitchen" (bag of sweets): a traditional gift for St Nicholas' Day!

In addition to the guided tours for the little ones, the LCTO will also organise "City Lights Promenade" at dusk. Let yourself be enchanted by the magical atmosphere and discover the capital's must-sees under the magic of Christmas with, among others, the prestigious Grand Ducal Palace, the Corniche, commonly called "the most beautiful balcony in Europe", as well as the various and numerous special illuminations of the "Winterlights" programme.
