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.

  • On Saturday (and possibly also on other days) there is a lively market. Seeing (prices are unapproachable) stalls of fruit and vegetables, cheese, and especially the area of plants and flowers.

  • On place Guillaume II you have quite a good restaurant and you are close to all Luxembourg administrations and businesses. Namely that the place is in the works for still a long time and that Luxembourg City is under construction everywhere.

  • Under major renovation so not good for photos but still worth visiting. I visited the William Square at Saturday market time; there were stalls with fresh vegetables and flowers, cheese and baked cake...  more »

  • Nothing much to describe... It is a quiet area in Luxembourg... There is a church and some cafés and restaurants...
  • It is ok. Nothing here is extremely beautiful. There is a city hall but despite that nothing more. When I was there was also very rainy and there was lacking the mood to walk around. There is a little tourist shop where you can buy some Luxembourg souvenirs and take a map to do a game around the city. That we really liked, even if is thought for children it could be fun for adults too.
  • Nice square surrounded with many nice shops and good restaurant. Had a very good lunch here.
  • Fantastic Christmas market with big longest hotdogs I have ever seen, great atmosphere
  • A beautiful place in the center of Luxembourg city. Feel the might of centuries looking at you 😉
