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.

  • 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
  • Beautiful place to visit. One of my favourite spot to visit every time as I'm in Luxembourg. Must have to see. If someone like to get walk-sightseeing around the city it is a good point to see for trip around Luxembourg.
