The Gallo-Roman villa in Goeblange will open its doors (at least, what’s left of them!) for a family fun day of history, music, crafts, food and more.
The day gives the public the opportunity to see history come to life just 20km northwest of Luxembourg City.
Workshops will be available for children aged 6-12. And for the older history buffs, there will be a number of Roman specialties dished up, including mulsum, a honey-spiced wine, and Celtic beer.
The estate covers five hectares and is believed to have been built in the early first century AD in a region once occupied by the Treveri tribe (from which the German city, Trier, gets its name), who inhabited the lower Moselle valley from at least 150 BCE.
Panels guide visitors through the past of the estate, which was comprised of a villa, temple, two residential buildings and three buildings linked to agriculture. One of the buildings is believed to have been fortified later to help protect against the Germanic invasions.
Guided tours of the estate can be arranged throughout the year on request by emailing [email protected] or calling (+352) 26 302 773.
