Traditional Buergbrennen throughout Luxembourg, Sunday, March 5, 2017

Like every year, the time has arrived to "burn" the winter.

The festivities will start in the early evening.

This year we did not find information that it would be held in the Petrusse Valley as well in the city centre. So you might need to go elsewhere: closest to the city is Bertrange (in front of the city hall) or in Niederanven.

A large lists of places available on Wort's website:

Have fun!

The next day, divide the butter at room temperature in 3 parts.

Spread the dough on the table and add one part of the butter. Fold the dough and put it in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Repeat the operations 2 more times.

Spread the dough on the table and cut it in equal parts.

Let the croissants rest for another 20 minutes then brush on top some milk and spread some granulated sugar.
