It is situated in a central location and it's high enough to be seen from a far distance. there was some brief info about what the statue was about, however no further info is provided which makes me wonder if it is actually supposed to pass some information to foreign visitors or it is just for people from Luxembourg who...

A very large Obelix with gold gilt statue on top; a symbolic monument for all the wars that have plagued humanity and the peace that all countries strive for. The place has, like most other similar attractions in Luxembourg, a breathtaking view over large parts of the city. If you look over the edge and down into the canyon, you... More

Worth a stop by to remember and to honor for a moment those who sacrificed so much. The monument is in an excellent scenic location. In itself it is very impressive.

With the beautiful "Golden Lady" on top. A tribute to WWI Luxembourgers that fought in the war. It was pulled down by the Nazis during WWII and only completely restored in 1985. The best views are during the Christmas market as the ferris wheel is put up in the parking lot surrounding the statue and you can have a very... More

The monument has a nice golden statue at the top but you will need a proper zoom to get a good photo. Nice view and a short wal to the famous Adolphe Bridge

A very moving tribute to these people. I was very impressed by how this has been done. The state has been through the wars over more than a thousand years and the history is in its DNA.

The monument is quite alright, and when I was there, it reminded me that Luxembourg in fact is a country with its own history (mostly due to the inscription at the bottom of the monument). The place is also very central, since all tours in the city depart from there.
