Vianden goes nuts this Sunday
When you think of nuts in Luxembourg it should make you think of Vianden with its sprawling orchards of walnut trees, and inevitably of the town’s traditional nut market or "Nëssmoort" that takes place this coming Sunday.
Steeped in tradition, the market dates back to October 6, 1935 when the first nutty celebration took place. The event is now held every second Sunday in October.
And if previous years are anything to go by, locals certainly love their nuts as the town of Vianden should be virtually at ‘cracking’ point with thousands of visitors taking advantage of the autumn weather and the 40 or so stands of nutty delights and more.But nuts, and everything containing nuts, are usually not the only things on offer. Fruit that symbolise early autumn such as apples and plums, have been available in previous years, as well as sweet bread, raclette and Nëssdrëpp; a nut schnapps. Last year there was even a nut beer to be enjoyed.
Along with the market, visitors can also enjoy street entertainment in the town centre for the young and the not so young.
So go nuts this Sunday from 10am to 7pm, and have a cracking time in Vianden!
