Place Guillaume II, Luxembourg City

#17 of 105 in Things to do in Luxembourg City
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.

  • This area is often one of the focal point in Luxembourg when it’s comes to events in the city. Which is very often. Luxembourg is a fantastic place for everyone and great efforts are made to make it inclusive to all. This year I’ve come for the Christmas markets and as ever - it’s spectacular
