Place Guillaume II, Luxembourg City

(3.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
The heart of Luxembourg's historic district, Place Guillaume II is known as knuedler, or knot, because of the Franciscan monks that once inhabited a monastery here. The knot in the rope that is part of the monk's attire is called a knuedler. A town hall replaced the monastery in the 19th century and continues to dominate the square's western side. A ring of trees provides shade and frames a tall statue of Grand Duke William II on horseback placed on a pedestal in the center of the square.

  • I visited this place in the morning so it wasn’t crowded. I stopped by at the tourist info and they were very helpful. There is nothing else to do here except take pictures of the Luxembourg City Hall...  more »

  • Its nice to walk through the square. I have really nice regards when the world cup was played. There was a huge screen and the ambience was great. Nice market every weekend.
  • One of the most interesting places to go out in luxembourg ville with average varaiety of international food
  • Called also Knuedler, is a big square where you can find a market on Wednesday and Saturday morning, but you can see very nice concerts or public viewings for sport events, movies and many others. There you can find also the Town hall (Hotel de Ville) and few steps away is the Ducal Palace.
  • The centre of Luxembourg is wonderful capital and country. Place Guillaume II is the town square and a central focal point for meeting friends etc. You can often find markets here...
  • Free public rest rooms, very clean, under the square by the parking garage entrance. Square is fine, nothing special. Tourist Info center is here.
