(ChB/sth) - This weekend, Luxembourg will celebrate its 'Buergbrennen'-tradition, setting 'Buergen' (literally castles, sometimes crucifixes) all over the country on fire marking the end of winter and the start of spring.

Find out all about this local tradition here.

In Niederanven, close to Luxembourg city, the organisers did not shy away from building an enormous castle, which should make for an impressive sight once set alight.
