Last Week

On Thursday last week, Grand Duke Henri went hiking to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the natur & ëmwelt / Fondation Hëllef fir d'Natur that promotes the preservation of nature in the Grand Duchy. Together with a group of ministers and other officials the Grand Duke hiked through south eastern Luxembourg, namely around the Canecher Wéngertsbierg. Pictures of the Grand Duke's adventures can be found over at Wort, the cour and on the website of the foundation.

In the evening of the very same day, the Grand Duke and his daughter Princess Alexandra attended a concert by Les Arts Florissants, a baroque musical ensemble. The French musicians gave a performance on the occassion of the world famous dancing procession of Echternach which took place today.
