Place Guillaume II, Luxembourg City

(260+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • If you're in Luxembour this is an area you can't miss. The place is in the centre of the city of Luxembourg, which combines old and new buildings everywhere. Lovely place to sit at a cafe for a while.  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.
  • Check out the fresh market on Wednesday and Saturday. From here you also see the palace
  • Main square in Luxembourg. Currently partly in construction but still charming
