Place d'Armes, Luxembourg City
(3.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Once a parade ground for troops, Place d'Armes today sits as a gathering place for city residents. Stately architectural gems border the square, including the municipal palace, known as the Cercle. You'll recognize the building for the three arches over its entry and top-floor windows, as well as a relief depicting the Charter of Emancipation, when Countess Ermesinde granted freedoms and duties to nobility for the people of Luxembourg. A marketplace area hosts people every year and offers a broad selection of handcrafted goods and tasty treats. No matter what time of year you visit, take time to indulge in the cafe culture here.
