Cow painting festival, Luxembourg

Each summer Luxembourg City provides a way for you to get your creative juices…erm mooing. April to September sees the capital city awash with many a multi-coloured beast.

Fake cows made from metal, wood, concrete and fibreglass display the demiurgic visions of resident artists.

Surreptitiously placed throughout the centre they accompany you on your morning jog, and sneak up on you during a leisurely lunch. Some showing detailed murals, others a melange of colours and psychedelic patterns, these cows always brighten up an otherwise ordinary cityscape.

Kaleidoscopic farm animals? Why it’s every summer’s essential.
