The kick-off will be given on June 2 at 4 p.m. with a visit to Luxembourg City Park and its casemates near the Amélie monument.
(Re)discover the gardens
An event that is a great opportunity for everyone to (re)discover gardens through guided tours, conferences, demonstrations of know-how, meetings with owners, gardeners, exhibitions, readings of texts, concerts and workshops.
Thus, on June 3 and 5, in the park of the former abbey of Echternach, Professor Marc Schoellen made visitors aware of the risks and threats that weigh on this natural and historical heritage due to climate change, such as diseases with dying ashes, the box tree moth or the depletion of the diversity of bird species. See you on June 3 also at Brill Park in Mamer for the inauguration of the new rose garden or at the Pétrusse renaturation sites in Luxembourg, exceptionally open to the public today.
An artistic program enriches the 2022 edition of the Rendez-vous aux jardins: readings in the private gardens of Eschdorf, of Folschette in Schléiwenhaff and of Wolff in Helmsange, concert by the rapper “Maz” in the garden of Wiltz or even a parade of bell ringers of Saint-Hubert hunting horns in the old town (June 5).
Educational visits will also be organized to the mill of Kalborn, to the Mediterranean garden of Schwebsange, to the Haus vun der Natur, to the marsh of Grendel, to the mill of Beckerich. The Transit Minette exceptionally opens the Breedewee garden in Esch-sur-Alzette for fun activities around gardening and its environmental impact.
