The 14th gathering of the German-speaking Heads of State included a number of events that blended work with cultural activities in Luxembourg. Attendees got started with several working meetings that focused on a number of issues including immigration and integration. Professors from the University of Luxembourg were there, along with Luxembourg writers Pol Greisch, Alexandra Fixmer, and Guy Helminger.

The spouses had the opportunity to learn more about the Institut européen des itinéraires culturels, which is based at the Abbaye de Neumünster. Attendees then had lunch at the Palais grand-ducal;. Also joining them were Hereditary Grand Duke and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie, in addition to Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn, and President of the Chambre des Députés Mars Di Bartolomeo.

The final events for the gathering included a visit to the Philharmonie and the Musée d'art moderne Grand-Duc Jean (Mudam), followed by a reception.

The next meeting of the German-speaking Heads of State is expected to take place in Switzerland.
