  • Writer's pictureOnce Upon a Time in Luxembourg


On the first Monday after Easter, on the Fish Market Square (Fëschmaart), next to the Grand Duke's Palace in the capital of the Grand Duchy, the festive Emaischen pottery fair traditionally takes place.

Péckvillchen is a bird-shaped clay whistle that makes a cuckoo-like sound.

The same traditional fair takes place in the west of Luxembourg in the village of Nospelt, where there is also a wonderful museum of pottery. Ceramics have been produced in Nospelt since the 15th century.

By the beginning of the 19th century, there were 17 different pottery workshops in the village. Nospelt was recognized as the center of Luxembourg's ceramic industry almost until 1914.
