The people behind LuxCon are very good at running multi-language cons and I believe that they will organize a great Eurocon.

Information is still limited at this point because of the current situation. This information is from the facebook page of the event.

Oh, that sounds cool. Never been to Luxembourg.

There is not much to see there ;-).

I wonder when anything significant (outside the tax evasion department) is going to transpire in Liechtenstein.

I expect to be there!

And I'm going to disagree with the comment above. It's small, but it's a very pretty town. Also, the fans who run the convention are hugely friendly and enthusiastic. The CosPlays are second to none and LuxCon is VERY well attended -- several thousand people a day at least.

They usually have a great games section too, as well as medieval reenactors in full armour staging brawls.

Recommended.

Luxemburg is indeed a very pretty town and the countryside is also beautiful.

They keep inviting you because you are an awesome guest!

Of course, I was just joking about the size of the country, not the city, or the people living there or anything like that. I've been there, too, although not all that often.

I figured, but didn't want anybody to take it literally and miss out :)

No idea if I'll make it to this, but I'll note that Luxembourg produces some excellent wines, especially dry whites and sparkling wines, though they are seldom seen here in the US. This makes perfect sense in terms of geography: the country's eastern border is the Moselle River. In Germany, on the other side of the stream, the Mosel region is one of the biggest of the country's 13 wine-producing regions -- and certainly the most famous, especially for high-quality white wines both sweet and dry.

Luxembourgian wines are made with grapes such as Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Auxerrois Blanc, Gewürtztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc, and tend to be similar in style to the wines produced in Alsace and some parts of Germany with the same varietals.

They also produce several varieties of sweet wines: Vendanges tardives (late harvest), Vin de Glace (ice wine), and Vin de Paille (straw wine, made from raisinated grapes in a style similar to Italian vin santo). All can be quite excellent.

A few years back, the DC chapter of the German Wine Society had a tasting I attended  -- it conveniently overlapped with the Capclave convention, a few Metro stops away -- that was held at the Embassy of Luxembourg, featuring roughly two dozen wines from that country. I was quite impressed with most of the wines they served.
