Press release: Traditional excursion at the Stëmm


As every year, the traditional excursion day of the Stëmm vun der Strooss attracts many people. This year it was Friday 11 August, when the beneficiaries of the social restaurants of Hollerich, Esch-sur-Alzette and Ettelbruck, as well as the people who work there as part of a socio-professional reintegration measure, enjoyed an exceptional day.

The group from Esch-sur-Alzette set off at 9.15 a.m. with an impressive number of 131 people in total to the Walibi theme park in Wavre in Belgium. Despite a slight delay, this did not dampen the good mood. After a two-hour drive, the group, led by Christoph Contier, reached the park, where Patrick Schanen, a volunteer photographer, first took the traditional group photo. Then, full of energy and anticipation, they headed for the various rides.

The other two buses, which left early in the morning from the Stëmm sites, arrived at their respective destinations in the morning. The group from Hollerich went to the Eifelpark, where 70 people spent an unforgettable day thanks to the various attractions, but it was above all the on-site animal park that impressed visitors. Good weather and a great atmosphere rounded off the day, which ended at around 7pm, back in Hollerich. The Stëmm from Ettelbruck also organised an outing to the Walygator theme park in France, with 70 participants.

Lunch was provided by the kitchens of the social restaurants, which were exceptionally closed that day, but beneficiaries were able to have lunch in Hollerich on Saturday and in Esch-sur-Alzette on Sunday.

The traditional outing is awaited with great anticipation every year by many beneficiaries of the Stëmm vun der Strooss and many can hardly wait to participate in the next outing, which will take place on 31 August in the Schueberfouer.
