Cavalcade in Diekirch 2020

The traditional Cavalcade in Diekirch offers once again a colorful program ​

In 2020, the Diekirch Cavalcade celebrates its 150th anniversary, welcoming carnival fans from all over the country. The “Dikricher Cavalcade” is, along with events such as the Schueberfouer or the Echternacher Sprangprozessioun, an integral part of the local cultural calendar.

While numerous tourists and nature lovers travel to tranquil Diekirch, particularly in summer, to benefit from the inviting terraces and the idyllic nature, the city in northern Luxembourg will treat you with a very special program on February 23 from 2:30 p.m. Already on February 20, a carnival festival for children as well as the opening of the official Cavalcade book exhibition will take place. In the evening, the traditional Altweiberbal, organised by the Diekirch football club, is on the program. On Fridays, the Diekirch swimming club organizes the well-known Hippiquesbal in the Aler Seeërei, where the Dompiraten will be taking care of getting everyone in a carnival party mood. On Saturdays families in particular get their money's worth with the Kannerfuesbal in the Aler Seeërei.


The highlight of the Dikricher Cavalcade is the Cortège parade on February 23 through the city, starting in Route de Gilsdorf, leading over the Esplanade and arriving at the cultural center Al Seeërei around 5:30 p.m. The entire parade is about 2km long, with this year's Cortège comprising 58 groups: 14 pedestrian groups, 3 fanfares and 41 moving cars, from which around 6 tons of sweets and gadgets are distributed among the crowd.


150th anniversary of the Diekirch Cavalcade on February 23, 2020


This year the Dikricher Cavalcade celebrates its 150th anniversary. The first Cavalcade was organized in 1870. The people of Diekirch, known for their festive mood, have continuously worked for the preservation of their carnival celebrations in the past decades, and with the founding of the organization “Eselen aus der Sauerstad Dikrich”, the Cavalcade could finally take place annually. To properly celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Cavalcade, the “Diekirch donkeys” wrote their own carnival song: “Den Esel un der Spëtzt”.



Diekirch, a charming city in Luxembourg’s north


The north of Luxembourg is becoming increasingly popular. With its generous green spaces such as the popular Müllerthal and an excellent quality of life, the picturesque city on the Sauer is captivating more and more residents. As part of the “Nordstad”, which includes the communities of Bettendorf, Colmar-Berg, Erpeldange, Ettelbrück and Schieren, Diekirch is proving to be an increasingly attractive location.


Not far from the charming town of Diekirch is the new building project Orchidée in Beaufort. The project owes its special characteristics in particular to its surroundings, which are dominated by the green spaces in the Müllerthal, "Luxembourg’s little Switzerland" in the canton of Echternach.
