3.8/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • 這天Guillaume II 廣場,工作人員正在準備音響設備,看來時間稍晚一些,即將會有表演。這是一個中型廣場,有 Guillaume II 的青銅騎像,就在遊客中心前,地點明顯,很適合各項演出,只可惜,我們不能待到太晚,無緣看到表演盛況。

  • 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.
  • Well known place in Luxembourg, very closed to the Palais Grand Ducal. There are lot of seasonal animations here, eg. winter market, or concert in summer period.
  • Cool place, it is also called Knuedler
  • The statue in the plaza has been under construction for almost two years making good photos difficult. A few so-so restaurants on the edges. Go here for the monthly farmers market for a very Luxembourgish experience.
  • 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.
