Celebration of the National Day of Luxembourg at the Ambassador's Residence in Abu Dhabi

Published Sunday June 24 2018

On 23 June 2018, the Ambassador of Luxembourg invited the Luxembourg community in the UAE to the Luxembourg residence for a reception on the occasion of the Luxembourg National Day. The reception brought together Luxembourgish citizens, businesses and friends in the UAE in a family friendly atmosphere while Luxembourg culinary specialities brought back good memories far from home. There are currently almost 100 Luxemburgish nationals registered with the Embassy and about 20 Luxembourgish businesses present in the UAE.

Originally, National Day in Luxembourg was held on 23 January, celebrating the birthday of  Grand Duchess Charlotte. In later years, in the 1960s, the celebrations were moved to 23 June to ensure more clement weather conditions.
