Place d'Armes, Luxembourg City

(3.9/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • Quick, pleasant service in a very attractive and clean space in a great location. Nice clean restrooms (on the -1 level). Lunch was excellent - crepe with chevre and tomatoes, a small salad on the side, half-liter of water, and a rhubarb tarte for about 15 euros.
  • I always love Paul's quality. Don't forget to try the burgers they serve!
  • The tea and coffee here was of excellent quality! And to a reasonable price. The atmosphere is ok.
  • This place is very hyped in Luxembourg, but it's really a very average place. The food is ok — just OK. Supposedly their pastries are amazing but I wouldn't know, because they didn't have any left when we went there.
  • Good cakes, excellent staff. Good for families.
