On St Patrick's Day, 17 March 2023, from around 20:00, the City of Luxembourg illuminate the Water Tower in Gasperich in green

However the Ville de Luxembourg offered to light up the water tower in Gasperich instead.

The Embassy of Ireland in Luxembourg has asked that, as this will be the first time that this tower will light up in green, they would welcome any photographs of the tower taken that evening (email:, with the best ones being posted on the Embassy’s Facebook page.
