Place d'Armes, Luxembourg City

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.

  • Enjoy to sit at a little table of the various bars that have there. This square is surrounded by historical buildings and deserves a visit.

  • Nice place to eat a quick or big lunch in downtown Luxembourg. Take-away has different offers than the eat-in. The lunch-drink-dessert option is a good choice! The toilets are all the way to the basement, which is rear but they are clean.
  • Located at the center of the market. Good food, especially the salad with the dressings is a must. Wish they start having menu in English as well. Other than that, I think it's a go place :)
  • I had come at Boulangerie PAUL Place d'Armes, it was a good experience. I like the Paul hamburger. There was a good atmosphere.
  • Slow service. The food was not fresh. The bread was very dry.
  • Came here when our usual weekend breakfast spot was closed. I've had bread from here many times (always good) but had the brunch for the first time — was a very nice surprise. Fresh fruit, pastries, salmon, salads, charcuterie, and eggs cooked to order. It's also quieter when eating upstairs. Will definitely return.
