Bretzelsonndeg 2017 in Luxembourg

Today, is that day. You now the drill by now: the guy gives the girl a pretzel to show he loves her and the girl will give him a painted egg on Easter if she loves him back.

Pretzels can be found almost everywhere these days ;) .

Luckily, you don´t have to wait too much to see if your love is shared, as Easter is nearby.

Candied orange peel - recipe (including photos)

  • 5 oranges
  • 250 grams of sugar
  • water

Wash the oranges throughly and keep them in a bowl with cold water for about 1 hour (it's preferable to buy organic oranges).

Peel the oranges and put them in a pot full with cold water.

Put the pot on fire and let it boil for 10 minutes. Change the water with clean hot water which you kept boiling in a separate pot.

Let it boil for another 15 minutes or until the orange peel is soft.

Drain the orange peels and let them cool.

Cut them in small strips and clean the white part of the orange slowly.

Mix the juice from the 5 oranges with the sugar and let it boil.

Add the orange peel over in the boiling the juice and let it boil for another 20 minutes.

Drain them on a rack for 2 - 3 days.

After that you can keep them in a jar and use when needed.

Traditional Buergbrennen throughout Luxembourg, Sunday, March 5, 2017

Like every year, the time has arrived to "burn" the winter.

The festivities will start in the early evening.

This year we did not find information that it would be held in the Petrusse Valley as well in the city centre. So you might need to go elsewhere: closest to the city is Bertrange (in front of the city hall) or in Niederanven.

A large lists of places available on Wort's website:

Have fun!
