From the Christmas markets to the open air restaurants in summer, Place d'Armes is a must see when visiting Luxembourg. Keep in mind that you are better off finding somewhere a couple blocks away to eat as most of the restaurants are expensive tourist traps.

To sit at Place d Armes during the summer or go to the Christmas market in Luxembourg during December you can say that you have been in Luxembourg. The square with music and you must try to sit and enjoy a coffee and look at people

I lived in Luxembourg many years ago, and the Place d'Armes was a busy social center in the central city then. Today, it is still a gathering place, but it has lost a bit of its charm, thanks to the overbearing regulations that control it. Back in the day, the entire plaza was filled with outdoor seating for the cafes... More

Pretty square in central Luxembourg. Lots of bars and restaurants off the square. Not very busy when we visited but I suspect this was the time of year rather than the normal. Worth walking through and stopping for a drink.

It is a great area to have a drink no matter the season of the year. During summer you can enjoy the good weather and refresh yourself in any of the good surrounding restaurants and during winter you have the Christmas market.

Charming central square in the middle of Luxembourg City's old town. It was set up as a bustling Christmas Market when I was there in November. It's fun, and there's lots to see. It's not a gorgeous market square like the ones in Brussels but it's still fun to walk around.

The main squre, probably contains pavement cafes and the imposing Cercle-Cite building in the summer but in winter with the Christmas market it was just a small winter wonderland. Stalls selling tourist trinkets but also with locally produced products and arts and lots of stalls selling different food, mettwurst and gluhwein and a small stage with various acts performing at...

This is one of the three large Christmas markets in the city centre and has lots of stalls serving Gluhwein! I liked the shoe-shaped mugs that it is served in (3 euro deposit on top of the drink price for these in case you don't return them!). The other markets are within sight (one has an ice rink and one... More

We combined it with a city walk to see the Dukes Palace, the inner city and the main shopping streets especially la Grande Rue ( Grand Rue ) and Louis Philippe II street. F A N T A S T IC and...
