Fodor's Expert Review Place Guillaume II Farmers' Market

Luxembourg Market

This square is known locally as the Knuedler, a name derived from the knotted belts worn by the Franciscan monks who once had a monastery on this site. On market days (Wednesday and Saturday mornings), beneath the statue of Grand Duke Guillaume II, it fills with fruit and vegetable stands, flower vendors, cheese- and fishmongers, and a few farmers who bring in their personal crops as well as homemade jam, sauerkraut, and goat's cheese. Before you leave, take a moment to soak in the lavish 19th-century Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall), its stairs flanked by two magnificent bronze lions.
