After the 2020 and 2021 editions of the Hopping Procession had to be canceled due to the pandemic, the Luxembourgish tradition returns to Echternach on 7 June this year.
Once again, organizers of the Hopping Procession expect thousands of participants and spectators to descend on Echternach for the event.
In 2010, Echternach’s Hopping Process has been granted the status of UNESCO intangible cultural heritage.
