Bike for climate (cycle paths around Arlon) – ‘From flame to light’ (show in Verdun)

Dear members,

Peace lacks visibility in our lives and in our societies!

It is war and violence of all kinds, with their images of the destruction of human lives, cultures, environments and the Other who is different, that continually occupy our daily lives on the many information networks.

What is missing are the initiatives and actions that enable us to be, or become, people who live and spread a spirit of peace.

We are offering our members, and anyone else who is interested, outings that teach this spirit of peace.

15 June: bike for climate – bike for peace

On Saturday 15 June 2024, starting at 9.30am, we’ll be meeting at the free car park of Clairefontaine Abbey (81, rue du Cloître, 67000 Arlon), which was once a Dominican convent before being handed over to the Fathers of the Congregation of the Sacred Heart.

Most of the cycle tour will take place on cycle paths around the town of Arlon (B). We’ll be back at Clairefontaine Abbey by 5pm.

Ad Pacem Bike Tour 6

28 June: Verdun ‘From Flame to Light’

This is one of Europe’s biggest shows on the 1914-18 war, with 250 actors, 1,000 spotlights and 2 hectares of stage space, giving you a visual and audio immersion into the heart of the battle and life in the trenches.

You can find out more about the show on the website:

The show starts in the dark of night (between 10.30pm and 11pm). We are organising a car pool from Esch-sur-Alzette (L) (around 8pm) and should arrive around 9.30pm to take the stage. The show lasts 1h30. You should expect to leave the stands at around 00:30. The journey from Esch-sur-Alzette to Verdun takes about 1 hour 20 minutes.

We can organise admission for groups at a preferential rate:

Adult admission €15 (instead of €24 at the individual rate);

Entry for young people (aged 7 to 15) €10 (instead of €16).
