The village of Schengen, on the Moselle River at the point where Germany, France, and Luxembourg meet, has been synonymous, since the conclusion of the eponymous "Schengen" Agreement in 1985, with the free movement of EU citizens across national borders.

With the free movement of UK nationals threatened by BREXIT, our aim is to reclaim it symbolically by walking the Schengen sans Frontières trail, starting outside the European Museum, rue Robert Goebbels, L-5444 Schengen at 14:00.

Our route takes us through vineyards, across the invisible border into France to the summit of the Stromberg, at 314m offering spectacular views of the Moselle valley and the village of Contz-les-Bains, before returning to Schengen for a well-deserved glass of Moselle wine at the Museum restaurant. The walk is 7.7km long, takes approximately 3 hours to complete and has some moderately difficult gradients.

2018 11 27 Embassy Citizens rights

Save the date for a joint meeting with the embassy on citizens' rights and Brexit on 27 November.

What happens to citizens’ rights after Brexit?
 
British citizens have been in limbo for over 860 days since the EU referendum. Yet we still don’t know whether we will get a Withdrawal Agreement with the EU27 or, if we do, whether it will be agreed by the UK Parliament. With so many variables, British citizens living in Luxembourg need to look at their options and know how life could change after 29 March 29th. 
 
UK Ambassador, John Marshall, and BRILL Chair Fiona Godfrey will give updates on where we stand now and what we can expect in the future before taking questions from the audience in an interactive session. 
 
Doors open at 18.30 for a 19.00 start.

Brexit - A Vigil

Fri. 31 Jan, 2020 22:30 - Sat. 1 Feb, 2020 0:31
This event does not repeat

The departure of the UK from the European Union is significant on many levels: political, financial, cultural and practical. A decision has been made, and it will impact not only UK nationals, but all members of the EU.
We wish to mark this moment, with a time of reflection - taking stock of what has been and what will be changing in EU/UK relations and personally in the lives of individuals.
Various local organisations are coming together to host

Brexit - A Vigil
on
Friday 31st January

It is not only for UK nationals but people of all nationalities here in Luxembourg. The venue is inside and in the courtyard of the church of St Alphonse, rue des Capucins (Centre-Ville).
Although called a Vigil and in a Church building it is a non-religious event and open to all. It is also not the time for protest or debate, but for reflection and gathering together.
From midday to midnight the church will be open and there will be candles to light and a noticeboard where all can make postings about 3 Questions:

“While Britain has been part of the EU I have valued....”
“Now Britain is leaving I feel....”
“Now Britain is leaving I hope.....”


The focus of the vigil will be from 22:30 to midnight and beyond.
The organisers hope local, national and EU politicians will join in too.
It will include:

  • input on the 3 Questions from a range of speakers and those attending
  • music and a recital organised by David Pike
  • two minutes of shared silence
  • the singing of Auld Lang Syne accompanied by a bagpiper
  • tolling of the church bell
  • and a Coupe d'Amitié

BRILL asbl, the Anglican Church, Pulse of Europe, English-speaking Catholics, Europa-Union together warmly invite all to come along at some point, join with others, write a message, light a candle, pause and reflect - and enjoy refreshments.

All are very welcome.
