The monument is a lovely memorial to the Fallen soldiers of Luxembourg in World War 1. Tributes and quotes (in French) adorn the base of the obelisk, and the golden statue on top shines in the sunlight. The area around also provides a view back towards the Gare quarter of the city.

It's hard to pass through Northern Europe without reminders of the lives lost here in the two world wars. This monument is a moving tribute to the ordinary citizens who defended their way of life and their families and paid the ultimate sacrifice. It is certainly a grand monument in tribute to their sacrifices, but like all such symbols, they... More

It is approximately 65 feet tall and on top of the granite obelisk is a statue of Nike, the goddess of victory. In 1940, during World War II, the Germans dismantled the memorial. It... More

Our coach stopped close by to drop us off and we were met by a guide. She spoke perfect English and told us a brief history of this statue. The Golden Lady on Constitution Square was set up in 1923 to commemorate the Luxembourgers who perished in the First World War. The memorial represents a gold-plated female figure on a... More

Beautiful monument in central location near Old Town. This is also starting point for hop on-hop off sightseeing bus, so great place to start your Luxembourg tour

The view of the city from there is even more fantastic.. Don't miss it if you are in Luxembourg ! It is a very good spot... More

I loved the design and architecture of this monument which can be seen from very far away or walking into the old town. Wandering a bit further you are rewarded with some great views of the city. I just wish they would have some information then and there, to tell us tourists just wandering around to understand the significance and... More

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
