Discover Children's Event - Péckvillercher / Traditional Luxembourg Whistling Birds
Paint your own Traditional Luxembourg Péckvillercher. Hands-on art fun for families!
On Easter Monday in Luxembourg, we celebrate with the Emaischen. This traditional pottery market takes place in Luxembourg Ville and the other in Nospelt to the west of the city. The market are popular and stalls packed with pottery offerings line the streets. The market itself can be dated back to 1827 and takes its name from the town of Emmaus, a town connected to the Easter celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. The overwhelming stars of the Emaischen are the Péckvillercher, the special pottery whistling birds. These charming birds come in different shapes and sizes and each year a special edition is created and collected. This year is unusual as you can create your own special edition, a keepsake of this special Luxembourg tradition. Primarily in English, though French and Luxembourgish spoken!
Paint your own Péckvillercher. Hands-on art fun for families! Everyone can transform the simple clay Péckvillercher into an individual piece of art that will be glazed and kiln-fired to a brilliant, durable finish. Come as a family or bring your child(ren).
