Award Garden of Excellence 2022

High distinc­tion for the “Rose­raie Châ­teau de Muns­bach”: at the World Rose Con­ven­ti­on in Aus­tra­lia, it was award­ed as “Gar­den of Excel­lence 2022”.

The “Rose­raie Châ­teau de Muns­bach” was award­ed on occa­si­on of the 19th World Con­gress of Roses which took place in Ade­lai­de from Octo­ber 27th to Novem­ber 3rd 2022. After South Afri­ca (2012), Lyon (2015) and Copen­ha­gen (2018), more than 300 par­ti­ci­pan­ts from 32 count­ries came tog­e­ther to take part in con­fe­ren­ces, visits, events, work­shops and meetings.

During the con­gress, the World Fede­ra­ti­on of Rose Socie­ties (WFRS) sel­ec­ted 8 rose gar­dens from 12 appli­ca­ti­ons, inclu­ding the “Rose­raie Châ­teau de Muns­bach” as the “Award of Gar­den Excel­lence 2022”. The “Rose­raie Châ­teau de Muns­bach” was sel­ec­ted based on the cri­te­ria of its ori­gi­na­li­ty, num­ber of roses, types of roses, qua­li­ty of care and attrac­ti­ve­ness to the public.

Mireil­le Steil, for­mer pre­si­dent of the “Lët­ze­buer­ger Rou­se­frënn” and vice pre­si­dent Euro­pe of the World Fede­ra­ti­on of Rose Socie­ties, had the honor of picking up this award on site. In the coming weeks, the world asso­cia­ti­on will hand over a bron­ze plaque to the Luxem­bourg rose fri­ends “Lët­ze­buer­ger Rou­se­frënn” that will be instal­led in the rose gar­den. 

Lite­ra­ry Award 2022 for the book “Luxem­bourg – Land of Roses“
The World Fede­ra­ti­on of Rose Socie­ties (WFRS) also award­ed the WFRS Lite­ra­ry Award 2022. Among the lau­rea­tes was the book “Luxem­bourg – Land of Roses” by Hei­di How­croft (aut­hor) and Mari­an­ne Maje­rus (pho­to­grapher), who­se pri­ze was picked up by the WFRS repre­sen­ta­ti­ve of Luxem­bourg, Mireil­le Steil.

World Rose Convention 2022

A rose for “Prince Charles de Luxembourg”

In the “Rose­raie Châ­teau de Muns­bach” in the gar­den of Müns­bach Cast­le, a rose was bap­ti­sed “Prin­ce Charles de Luxembourg”.

Prin­ce Charles, the son of Her­edi­ta­ry Grand Duke Guil­laume and Her­edi­ta­ry Grand Duch­ess Sté­pha­nie, was born on 10 May. Bare­ly five months after his birth, a rose was chris­ten­ed “Prin­ce Charles de Luxem­bourg” in the “Rose­raie” in the park of Müns­bach Cast­le. With the rose bap­tism, the “Lët­ze­buer­ger Rou­se­frënn” keep an old tra­di­ti­on ali­ve. “It is a nice cus­tom that roses bear the name of mem­bers of our ruling house,” empha­sis­ed Mireil­le Steil, Pre­si­dent of the “Lët­ze­buer­ger Rou­se­frënn” at the christening.

Her­edi­ta­ry Grand Duke Guil­laume, Her­edi­ta­ry Grand Duch­ess Sté­pha­nie and Prin­ce Charles came to the park in Müns­bach for the naming cerem­o­ny in a small cir­cle on 5 Octo­ber. After a short tour of the rose gar­den — whe­re roses named after Grand Duke Jean and Her­edi­ta­ry Grand Duch­ess Sté­pha­nie, among others, can be seen — the chris­tening of the rose took place. After­wards, the Her­edi­ta­ry Grand Duke and Grand Duch­ess plan­ted the first spe­ci­men of the new flower.

The rose “Prin­ce Charles de Luxem­bourg” was bred by the Bel­gi­an bree­der Anne Vel­le, Lens-Roses. The pro­cess took six years, Anne Vel­le explai­ned at the chris­tening in Müns­bach. Among the spe­cial cha­rac­te­ristics of the flower were its high resis­tance and its ver­sa­ti­li­ty.
At the renow­ned rose novel­ty com­pe­ti­ti­on in Baden-Baden, the rose has alre­a­dy been award­ed the Luxem­bourg Pri­ze of Honour. Accor­ding to the bree­der, it will be available in autumn of next year.

Visit by the President of the World Federation of Rose Societies to the Munsbach Castle Rose Garden.

Visit at the “Rose­raie Schloss Muns­bach” by the Pre­si­dent of the World Fede­ra­ti­on of Rose Societies.

At the invi­ta­ti­on of the Lët­ze­buer­ger Rou­se­frënn, Count­ess Hen­ri­an­ne de Briey, Pre­si­dent of the World Fede­ra­ti­on of Rose Socie­ties, took advan­ta­ge of her visit to Luxem­bourg to visit the Park of the Châ­teau de Müns­bach to walk through the flower­beds of this magni­fi­cent natio­nal coll­ec­tion of our coun­try­’s roses.

She was thus able to admi­re the roses pro­du­ced in the past by Luxem­bourg rose gro­wers and wide­ly expor­ted throug­hout the world, as well as tho­se later chris­ten­ed in Luxem­bourg:
In all, around 150 dif­fe­rent spe­ci­es, in full bloom.
The Pre­si­dent of the Lët­ze­buer­ger Rou­se­frënn, Mireil­le Steil, sur­roun­ded by her com­mit­tee, led the visit.

We stop­ped in front of this or that rose dedi­ca­ted to a mem­ber of the grand-ducal fami­ly or to a Luxem­bourg or for­eign per­so­na­li­ty.
The rose gar­den is open to the public and is free­ly acces­si­ble every day of the week.
It should be remem­be­red that the World Fede­ra­ti­on brings tog­e­ther some fif­ty Natio­nal Fede­ra­ti­ons and that it was crea­ted by the mother of Count­ess Hen­ri­an­ne de Briey: Lil­ly de Ger­la­che, a gre­at figu­re of the Bel­gi­an resis­tance and a sur­vi­vor of Ravens­bruck.  Gas­ton de Ger­la­che, Hen­ri­an­ne’s father was with Prin­ce Antoine de Ligne, hus­band of Prin­cess Alix, a mem­ber of the Bel­gi­an expe­di­ti­ons to Antarctica.

We also brief­ly recal­led the histo­ry of the cast­le, which for a few years after the First World War was the resi­dence of the Bel­gi­an Lega­ti­on with Albert de Ligne and Jules le Jeu­ne de Muns­bach. And it was the lat­ter who, in 1921, after the trou­bled years of dis­cord, con­tri­bu­ted to the set­ting up of the Eco­no­mic Uni­on with Belgium.
