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.

Its a nice statue with a gloden lady on top. Most important is the area around it, there is a lovely view of the bridge and gardens there. Nice to make some pictures. Lovely nature and flowers down there.

Absolutley beautiful statue standing on the edge of the viaduc. You can see the wind blowing in the womans dress and she is shining like gold. Rised above ground on the pelar it gives me a sens of victory and pride. Even if you only have a few minutes to spare during your visit, that is al you need. And... More

Set almost adjacent to the Adolph Bridge and next to the hop on hop off bus stop. This monument was typical of all those seen elsewhere in central Europe. Set in a pretty backdrop a nice addition to the photo album
