The Festival of Wiltz: 25 June-31 July
Since the creation of the festival in 1953, this unequalled open theatre, with the castle as setting, is the annual appointment of artists as well as theatrical and musical ensembles of international breadth.In 1953, a handful of people from Wiltz had the extraordinary idea to create a festival in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. From theatre the progression to music was natural, and a public of connoisseurs and amateurs reponded with enthusiam to this initiative. Thus, the Festival of Wiltz has been able to present some of the biggest artists of our time, some for the first time ever in Luxembourg.
In 1991 a removable roof, which covers the main stage and offers refuge to a thousand spectators, was installed. So the problem of bad weather was solved and the public now enjoys extraordinary acoustic conditions.
