Something Special

The annual Dancing Procession in Echternach honors St. Willibrord, who brought Christianity to the region in the 7th century.

Each Whituesday (June 2 in 1998), the bishop of Luxembourg leads hundreds of citizens and pilgrims, dancing slowly to a medieval tune, from the banks of the Sžre to the basilica housing Willibrord's remains. This year's procession also marks Echternach's 1500th anniversary.

Manifesta 2, the second edition of a new European biennial of contempory art, will be held in Luxembourg June 28-Oct. 11.
