The third part of the series deals with customs that are still celebrated in the Luxembourg Moselle region today. We begin in Grevenmacher with the Coronation of the Wine Queen, which takes place every year on the second weekend in September.
The tour continues to Ehnen to the “Confrérie St. Cunibert”, which was originally founded on 6 May 1967 in the Stadtbredimus castle. Another tradition in Remich is the burning of the “Stréimännchen” (straw figure), which is an integral part of the calendar: On Ash Wednesday. To end off, we are welcomed by the inhabitants of Schwebsingen to their wine festival. The invitation is extended every year on the first Sunday in September
