11h00-13h00 (DE) : Walk 'Water, our source of life'

Water has always played a central role in people's lives. It is essential for survival, useful as a means of transport and pleasant for swimming. Beyond that, it draws borders. However, water can also put people at risk, for example through the transmission of diseases or floods. During a walk in the city of Luxembourg, you will learn more about this theme. What role does water play for the city of Luxembourg? What are its positive and negative effects on the city's inhabitants for centuries? Discover water as a source of life.

Guided tour: Gleef dat net...! Conspiracy theories, past and present

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, a growing number of people are convinced that secret forces are behind social crises. However, the phenomenon of such conspiracy theories is much older, and some accusations have existed for centuries until today. In a historical perspective, the exhibition examines the origins, functioning and spread of conspiracy thinking – from the alleged well poisoning by Jews in the Middle Ages, through Freemasons and Illuminati, to ‘chemtrails’ and anti-vaccinationists. The show, which is rich in exhibits and topics, aims to make a contribution to a socially relevant topic as well as to provide support for the distinction between fact and fiction, which is particularly important in the Internet age.


15h30-17h30 (FR) : Medieval walk

Let's discover the medieval past of the city of Luxembourg! This medieval walk starts on the lower level of the Lëtzebuerg City Museum where the model representing the city around 1500 introduces the subject. Then, let's go out and walk through the old town to find traces of its medieval remains. The layout of its charming alleyways, the Three Towers, the Scheieschlach, as well as the 12th century wall, well sheltered in the archaeological crypt of the Rue de la Reine, the vaulted cellars and the Gothic sculptures on the façade are all discreet testimonies of this medieval past that flames and bombardments have not succeeded in making disappear.


16h00-17h30 (FR) : Guided tour: 'Myths, legends and symbols'

Art historian Nathalie Becker takes you on a slightly different tour of the exhibition The Luxembourg Story. Unicorns, mermaids, symbols and signs are hidden in the exhibition. What is their meaning and how are they used elsewhere in the history of art? Find out!
