Today it was time for the Hereditary Grand Ducal Couple's next stop on their tour to Luxembourg's 15 Centre de Développement et d'Attraction (CDA). After already having visited Mersch, Vianden, Echternach and Redange, it was time to pay a visit to Dudelange today.

After being greeted by the town's mayor Alex Bodry, Mars Di Bartolomeo, former mayor and current minister for health and social security, as well as a bunch of other important people, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie listened to a presentation about the city at the Centre national de l'audiovisuel (CNA). Afterwards they viewed the Edward Steichen exhibition "The Bitter Years" at the Waassertuerm

After a stroll through the town, the Hereditary Grand Ducal Couple and their hosts visited the local musical festival where they listened to a concert by the regional music school, drank a few beers and had their pictures taken with interesting creatures. To round off their visit, Guillaume and Stéphanie spontaneously visited the parish church of Dudelange.

While more visuals are located at Wort in French, Wort in German, Wort in English, Tageblatt, Manuel Dias and L'essentiel, a video can be found at RTL.
