Moms and Babies
This group arranges various playdates, storytelling sessions, and sing-a-longs. Depending on the month and the volunteers, the groups meet either at the Clubhouse or at mothers’ homes. Some moms will also organize playdates at the park or other activities. It varies each month.
Luxembourg is an eminently walkable city. Get to know its ins, outs and back ways - great exercise and a lovely group of ladies. Walks are typically scheduled weekly.
Hiking is a great way to explore the lovely and varied landscape of Luxembourg. The women hike an average of 8-10 kilometers over about 2 hours. The group hikes in a different location each Friday morning, with a pre-hike on Monday.
A ramble is a longer, all day, hike of about 20 kilometers. There will be a stop for a picnic lunch along the way. This group meets once a month.
Catch up on all the current movies with AWCL friends. Since the movie schedules change frequently, join the group's Facebook group for upcoming meeting dates.
Women Who Read
The AWCL has two book club groups that meet monthly: one on Thursday mornings and one on Tuesday evenings. Both groups are great opportunities to discuss the selected book (love it or hate it!) over coffee or wine and enjoy the company of other members.
Visual journaling is very similar to a written journal with the use of doodles, drawings, images, crayons, pastels, collage, chalks and paints (to name a few). In this group we will explore a variety of mediums and techniques as a way to express yourself artistically. No experience is necessary to participate or you may be an experienced artist in need of some "Play" time to explore visual expression without judgement or expectation. We will begin with directed (or not) doodles and let it grow from there.
Philarmonie Concerts at Lunch
Each month from September through June, the Philharmonie offers a free 30-minute concert at 12:30 pm. Performers include a wide range of musical genres and disciplines with many guest artists. Come for the concert and stay for lunch afterwards, available in the foyer for a small fee.
