The seven keys of Melusina
The legend of Melusina is an integral part of the city of Luxembourg’s cultural history. The wife of the city’s founder, Siegfried, she was a mermaid who hid her secret from her husband by requesting that she be left alone to bathe in privacy once a month. But curiosity got the better of Siegfried, and he spied her fish tale. Realising the truth was out, Melusina dived into the Alzette and was never seen again, although locals claimed to have spotted her in the river below the Bock promontory every now and again. Mediation SA organises a treasure hunt style event based on the legend in which participants have to find Melusina’s seven keys dotted around the city. Not only does this encourage team building, participants also learn more about the city’s hidden gems and legends.
