We are open on Monday 3 September, when Luxembourg holds its annual “Braderie”. A Braderie simply is a street sale, taking place on a pre-defined day at the end of the Sales. The shop owners will set up their stalls outside the shops and sell their goods for lower prices (â€śbradĂ©iert PrĂ¤isserâ€ť). In general a Braderie involves, live music from marching bands and other performances by local clubs and associations to create the feeling of a Folk Festival. The first Braderie took place in Lille and gradually moved over to Reims, Nancy and finally to Luxembourg in 1929. The word â€śBraderieâ€ť has its origins in the French province of Flanders and derives from the word â€śbraadenâ€ť (â€śbrodenâ€ť in Lux or â€śroastingâ€ť, â€śbarbequingâ€ť in English). This is because at all of these street sales, people were usually having a barbeque with ThĂĽringer, Kottletten (chops) and Mettwurscht. So if you have no lunch plans on Monday, why not pay the Braderie a visit!
