Stéphanie Opens Rose Garden

Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie was on hand today to officially reopen the Rousegäertchen in the town of Walferdange. The rose garden, which doesn't only feature roses but all kinds of flowers, was completely renovated on the initiative of a national network of rose gardens launched by the Patrimoine roses pour le Luxembourg. The Hereditary Grand Duchess was joined by the Minister of Culture Maggy Nagel for the event, who stressed in a speech  how important it is to keep Luxembourg rose heritage alive. The Grand Duchy has always been known as an important rose-grower.

With the event today, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie follows in the footsteps of her husband's grandmother, the late Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte, who inaugurated Walferdange's Rousegäertchen back in 1970. Lots more on that, on the website of Walferdange. And more pictures at the cour and RTL.
