On Easter Monday, as per tradition, Luxembourg celebrated Éimaischen, or Fete d'Emmäus, a popular folklore celebration that takes place in the old quarter of Luxembourg City along rue Marché aux Herbes, on Place du Marché-aux-Poissons, and in the small town of Nospelt.

The origins of Éimaischen, as a pottery market in Luxembourg City, go back to at least the 19th century. If you would like to know more, why not read the story of Luxembourg's Éimaischen celebrations?
