    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Though ours is but a quiet and clam city, get-togethers at cafes and parties often do break this rule of clam! A joyful, cheerful, and lively atmosphere is always at the coner to welcome you. And should your visit happen to be within the annual two months Wiltz Festival, then you would get to see how we use celebrations to turn night into day!
    During the Festival time, which is always in the summer, there are different types of actives, at our open air- city square. These rang from Jazz, reggae, classical, to pop music, featuring different international and local bands. The selection of which is very dependent on how they were able to attract the attention of inhabitant’s here:-)


    Dress Code: Dress code is much of a free one, so long as people do not come in their birth suit:-)

    the Festive stage!

    A good road network is what we have here! That is, in the upper and lower parts of the city. And a city bus shuttles these roads, twice in every hour from 5:00am, until mid night. There is a train station, with rails linking us to the other part of the country. And trains are available, once in every hour, form 6:00am to 11:00pm.

    There is no ban on the use of private cars, motorbikes, nor bicycles! So you can come along with yours if you so wish:-)

    Just as is true for every part of Luxembourg, the typical Luxembourg man or woman will need extra time to warm up to you:(
    So do expect the same here in Wiltz!!
    But don't worry, as the large Portuguese population would fill in the gaps! hehehe
    But when every one is in the festive mood, do expect to see lots of fun going around:-)

    a street parde during the Wiltz festival!

Ehi told me that up the hill there is a statue of Our Lady and it is lightened up during the night.You can walk to there.I hope he shows me the way up next time!
