It's official!!! The 2016 European RHS Hoot will be in Luxembourg City on Saturday, 11 June! Host
Chapters are my two German groups: Red Hat Power Ladies and Feuer und Flamme [Fire and Flame].
There are no RHS Chapters in Luxembourg, but my crowd travel there by express coach in 1¼ hours.
We will soon send out a list of hotels we recommend, scaled by price, nearness to the Old City, and nearness
to our festival venue (to be announced in a few weeks, after our negotiations). It's always nice to see where
other Red Hatters are staying, so we can informally hook up at breakfast or at the bar. Our colours make it
possible to recognise and speak to other Red Hatters right away!
The bad news: Luxembourg is said to be the most expensive European city, for hotel and food prices, for
parking, and for taxis. Must be all those banks with all that money floating around! Indulging in the RHS
″official″ sport of Shopping might get expensive.
However, on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, there is a flea and street market in the middle of the Old
City, on Place d'Armes. And is 11 June the 2nd Saturday? Yesss!!!! Also, buses are cheap, and walking is even
cheaper, which is why we're looking at hotels within walking distance of the Old City or near a bus-stop.
Even more good news: Luxembourg is a conference city, so hotel prices are down on Friday and Saturday
nights, go up somewhat on Sunday night, and are the most expensive Monday to Thursday. So we're
checking out hotels that have Weekend Specials. Many of you will want to come in on Thursday or Friday
and leave on Sunday or Monday.
As for transportation, one group in England found a good deal for a flight with Easyjet from London
Gatwick to Luxemburg for just €108 a person, on www.skyscanner.net. Another group from England is
thinking of taking the train (Eurostar?) to Brussels and changing there for Luxembourg. Those flying from
Gothenburg, Sweden will probably have to change planes in Amsterdam or Copenhagen, as there seem not to
be direct flights.
Thus, most groups from farther away will take planes or trains. But, what about those from Belgium or the
Netherlands – any thoughts yet on transportation? Are there long-distance coaches? If you have found a
good deal, let us know so we can spread the word.
And as soon as you have decided on transportation, let us know, too, so we can plan better
I hope to see a lot of you in Luxembourg City
