Visiting Mersch

This morning, the Hereditary Grand Ducal Couple conducted the first of several visits scheduled until the end of the year that will lead them to the fifteen Centres de Développement et d'Attraction (CDA) all over the Grand Duchy. The aim of the visits is the new Hereditary Grand Duchess getting to know her adopted country better. The Grand Ducal Couple did a similar thing after they got married in the 1980's.

The very first visit led Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie to Mersch, the geographic centre of Luxembourg. They visited the Château de Mersch, which is one of the castles of the Valley of the Seven Castle, were given a presentation by the commune and met with students from the local primary school Jean Majerus and of the Mersch branch of the Lycée classique in Diekirch. The visit was rounded off by visits to the local house of culture and deanery church.

Series of lovely photographs are located at Wort, on the website of Manuel Dias, on the website of Mersch and on the website of the cour. RTL covered the event in their evening news.
