Another nice European square.

If you are traveling through Europe, I would recommend a stop in Luxembourg. We spent the afternoon there while driving through to Belgium and been to France. I am very glad that we stopped.

Placed in the middle of the city, it houses a lot of restaurants. Nothing special to see, as it is a big square.

Nothing special - better food and drink from places a couple of roads further back. The bandstand seems to be where the Luxembourg homeless congregate. That said - clean and tidy and central location for our hotel and easy walk to the rest of the city.

There are lots of good bars and restaurants in town. An open space in a city is synonymous for sunshine. That's why the people keep coming. Be a bit more adventurous, the rewards are just around the corner...

We just wanted drinks but wanted to sit in the square which is attractively decorated with flowers. We normally wouldn't frequent McDonalds but it was the best option to sit on the square on this occasion. We parked with a good view of the gorge and it was a short walk up to the square.

I come there for lunch any time I can. During the summer you can eat at any terrasse and listen to marching bands performing for most of the day. All of Luxembourg likes to gather here for events such as braderies, christmas markets, etc... If you come to Lux city and you have not gone there then you are missing... More

This is the center of Luxembourg. A great place for a stroll. Lots of shops and restaurants. Wednesday and Saturday there is a market. Wonderful way to spend a few hours.
