Exhibition Luxembourg Street Photography, 1950 – 2017

The exhibition showcases approximately 200 photographs featuring snapshots from everyday life in the public arena in Luxembourg City, from the 1950s to the present day. The common thread throughout all the images is that they are considered examples of ‘street photography’, which involves spontaneously capturing a given situation. Shots of random passers-by or groups of people become historical documents against the backdrop of the city, yet the atmosphere they exude and their composition also transcend their historical context. 

Free guided tour every Thursday at 19:00.

20.09.2018 - 20.12.2018

Mini-koala climbing course for children aged 5 – 7

From this year onward we have a brand new ‘mini-koala’ climbing course on offer. All children between the age of 5 and 7 are invited to participate in a 13-week course led by our professional climbing coaches. The activity will take place every Thursday between 2pm and 3pm on the youth hostel’s very own indoor climbing wall. While the primary aim is for the children to have fun, the course furthermore aims at stimulating concentration, coordination, balance and confidence.

Climbing is part of our human development and curiosity. Who hasn’t at some point felt the urge of climbing up a chair, wall or tree? It is therefore only natural to further support this development. Whilst having a whole load of fun, the ‘mini-koalas’ will be confronted with effort, happiness, pride, frustration and success, the sensations which make up much of our daily lives. Climbing is the perfect activity to satisfy a child’s need for movement whilst exploring their own boundaries, taking responsibility and learning to trust other people.

Requirements:
Course is optimised for children aged 5-7. No prior experience in climbing is required.

Sessions:
13 dates – always on Thursday from 2pm – 3pm.
Attention: No courses will take place during Luxembourgish school holidays.

Price per child for a total of 13 sessions:

  • 150 € (Price for members of the youth hostels*)
  • 160 € (Standard price for non-members)

* Not a member yet? No problem! Contact us for information on how to get your membership card. Being a member allows you to save money for all activities organised by the youth hostels and much more!

Escalade jeunes à Echternach
20.09.2018 - 20.12.2018

Climbing course for children aged 8 – 12

The activity will take place every Thursday between 3.30pm and 5pm on the youth hostel’s very own 14 metres indoor climbing wall. While the primary aim is for the children to have fun, the course furthermore aims at stimulating concentration, coordination, balance and confidence. Acquired skills therefore may help kids in everyday life.

From a physical point of view, climbing is considered as a full-body workout because exercises involving coordination lead to an improved cooperation between different muscle groups and extremities. From a psychological point of view, the facing of challenges in climbing help enhancing self-confidence and self-assurance. The kids will be required to develop strategies in order to overcome various tasks. Furthermore, due to climbing being a sport in which progress is perceived rapidly, self-confidence is strengthened.

The course will take place if at least 6 participants register. Should the minimum amount of participants not be reached, you will be notified in due time.
 

Requirements:
Course is optimised for children aged 8-12. No prior experience in climbing is required.
