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

Place d'Armes is a "must" for Luxembourg. Even though it can feel pretty "Touristy" (I live in Luxembourg, but still like to come here), it has it's charm and life. Good place to sit down and enjoy a coffee or a cold glass of Luxembourghish white wine.

Place d'Armes is full of Christmas spirit and animosity, it is a must to visit... You can enjoy local and typical food particularly of winter and of this particular season, like warm Gluck wein (lucky wine) served in a christmas boot-mug and many typical food of which I cannot remember names (sausages, cookies, frites, and so on). You cam also... More

The flea market was superceded by a Xmas one! Awful but this is my opinion only. It was popular. The food was high calorie and hot Glubvein? Now does that mean the alcohol is negated in the SUGAR content and reheating?

The Place d'Armes is a nice location but during November a market place is set up so it takes away for the locations feel and photo-op but since it so close to shops and restaurant it is a good place for walk and picture opportunity
