Statue de la Grande Duchesse Charlotte, Luxembourg City
(3.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Designed by a Parisian sculptor named Jean Cardot, Statue de la Grande Duchesse Charlotte was unveiled with the grand ducal's family looking on. The grand duchess ruled from 1919 to 1964. She played a particularly important role as a uniting symbol for Luxembourg during the German occupation in World War II. During that time, the duchess held regular broadcasts on the BBC and traveled to allied countries to gain international notoriety for Luxembourg. When she returned to her home country, she continued to host international dignitaries and live a public life with her people, which made her well-loved. The duchess' graceful posture in the statue, with one arm reaching out to the city, belies its solid bronze.

  • Nice little square very quiet and clean close to most attractions. Some pictures of the fountain of the Duchess do undoubtedly part of your book of Luxembourg.
