Local man starts drive home for Christmas in November

A local man started his drive home from Luxembourg City this afternoon and is hoping to arrive at his home in Neideranven in time for Christmas day.

The city’s streets have been plagued with traffic jams over the last few days and so the man is hoping to get a head start by setting off today (Friday 8th November).

At the time Beneleux News held the interview with the man sitting in his car on the Avenue de la Gare, he was remaining optimistic.

“I thought if I leave the office now, I could get a head start,” said the man.

“I’ve got enough petrol in the tank and a supply of food and drinks with me, it should be possible. I’m also loaded with an extensive library of Chris Rea songs to keep my optimistic for the journey. All I can think about are the happy faces of my wife and kids when I arrive.”

All the staff here at Beneleux News wish him the best of luck and will try to catch up for a progress interview in a few weeks when he reaches the Black Stuff.

Chaos as 18,000 people bring their own car to concert

Traffic chaos hit Luxembourg on Saturday night as pretty much EVERYONE who attended the Rammstein concert decided to bring their own car.

In typical Luxembourg fashion, public transport was seen as an unnecessary option and many people thought it would save time to just drive to the concert in individual cars.

This led to many hours of cars queueing to get out of the parking area.

One concert goer we spoke to commented: “Majoooo haaa! I don’t take the bus to come here. I drive my BMW and my friends will all take their cars too. You must be crazy to take the bus!”
