Statue de la Grande Duchesse Charlotte, Luxembourg City

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.

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.
