Beaufort is home to Luxembourg's oldest disco. It is less than 400 metres from our gîte. It has the atmosphere of days gone by in a modern twist. Music of the past mixed with music of the present. Look for their programme on their website. Enjoy a beer there and when the last tones of music have sounded stay the night easygoing and cosy at Tailor's Trail.
“The Flying Dutchman is the oldest Disco in Luxembourg still keeping the original alternative spirit for over 50 years.
The place which is now known as the Flying Dutchman, had already a dance floor before 1976, with some balls organised in the afternoons. In 1971, Carlo Schneider and Nic Herber organised the first Disco at this location.
It was Carolina J Oudkerk Pool, a 48-years old Dutch Mother of five children, together with her oldest son Marcel, who gave birth to the mythical FLYING DUTCHMAN on 2nd February 1976. She used to call Marcel “the Flying Dutchman”, as he was always on the run and never at home - and decided to register the new business on this name. After a renovation and complete change of the location, they did what seemed impossible at the time and opened the discotheque in the middle of nowhere.
Concerts were organised and artists like Buffalo C. Wayne, Hugo van Haastert, Nena, to only name a few, performed live at the Flying Dutchman. Younger tourist kids needed to be back at the Camping around 11pm, making space on the floor for the real Rock'n'Rollers. So the Legend began.”
