Place Guillaume II, Luxembourg City

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.

    The scenery is much better, and visited on the evening of Saturday, around the Statue Square was under construction and had not failed. In Luxembourg City, open events, such as street performers, was a large turnout, but not many people on this square.

    Was so lucky to get on a Saturday when there is a market here. It sold various delicacies, flowers, home-made candles and fruit, vegetables and fish. Every Wednesday and Saturday at noon. Or a square, surrounded by restaurants and shops. A superb place to place the man while one shopper a little.

    There is a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. This is mainly food. The Luxembourg Tourist Office is here so it's a great place to stop for lunch or a few beers and plan your itinerary  more »

    One of the main squares of the city. Nice bars around and in summer, you might find yourself in front of a big stage for a free concert

    You gonna love this place. Provides lot of activities all year long. Best in christmas time with catering, hot drinks and ice skating arena.

    This square had been under rénovations for quite some time and even before that was just a square without many shops. There's a decent vegetarian restaurant in one corner and a fancy seafood place.

Where to stay in Luxembourg City

With 24 districts making up Luxembourg City, you might have a hard time choosing what neighborhood you like best. For starters, look at accommodations in Ville Haute, the medieval center, where you’ll be at the heart of the city and within walking distance to main attractions as well as public transportation. If stunning views are what you’re after, look into Ville Basse, a central neighborhood in the city’s gorge. Gare is also well-located, home to the city’s main train station as well as many lively restaurants and cafes filled with locals. Whether you stay in one of the city’s few hostels or a hotel, be prepared for high prices.
