At 10am this morning, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie were welcomed by mayor Henri Mausen, minister Marco Schank and many other guests of honour in front of Redange's community hall. While the Hereditary Grand Duchess was given a bouquet of flowers, the Hereditary Grand Duke was gifted a paiting. Together they were given a ceramic Kropemann, a water spirit of the Atert and symbol of Redange.

After a presentation about the commune by the mayor, the couple visited the Maison de l'Eau (house of water) and the Energieatelier (energy atelier). They also met with students of the local primary school who had their sport's day today. Together with students of the Atert-Lycée, they viewed their Photovoltaïque (photovoltaics) and Insektenhotel (insect hotel) projects. They also met with people from the local retirement home and learned about early education at the Bëschschoul.

Pictures of the visit can be found at Wort in German, Wort in French and Wort in English.
