Maitrank Festival: The Favourite Aperitif in Arlon
© Ville d'Arlon

The secret of the Maitrank is jealously guarded in Arlon, where everyone has their own recipe. Come and enjoy this drink in Arlon on 25 and 26/05/13.

So what is Maitrank?

This Arlon beverage is extracted from sweet woodruff flower soaked in Moselle wine with oranges and other spices.

Every year, the city celebrates its local aperitif, a seasonal drink that is typical of the region.

During these festivities, folk bands parade across the city. Several Maitrank tasting stands are set up in the centre of town where a fountain of the famous drink lies, while a show takes place on the Place Leopold.

This year's schedule

On Saturday from 5pm and on Sunday from 11am in the city centre admission is free!

Saturday at 5pm: inauguration of the Maitrank fountain and free sampling.
Music on the Place Leopold and fireworks at the end of the evening.

Sunday from 11am: a great festival of wooden games and street performances.
Fair on the Plaine des Manoeuvres on both days.
