The fifth edition of LuxCon, Luxembourg's national sci-fi, fantasy and comic convention, will take place this coming weekend at Campus Geesseknäppchen in Luxembourg City.

Hosted by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Society (SFFS), the event has become a solid reference for followers across the Grand Duchy and elsewhere in Europe.

Thousands of fans from Luxembourg and the Greater Region flock to the popular event to enjoy all things science fiction.

This year, there will be a special gaming zone and an outdoor "escape adventure" area requiring brain-teaser skills to solve problems to escape.
