Luxembourg is a pace of endless possibilities. Ever since we have started seeking fellow tourist on accounts of their experiences in the place, there has never been any complaints, only good reviews and citations.
Once again, Balmoral International Group Luxembourg presents to you another significant place to visit in the Grand Duchy.
In 1797, the monastery was dispossessed by occupying French soldiers during the French Revolutionary wars and in 1804, Napoleon, who was there to visit the country at that time presented the gift to the city. A new town hall was planned to be built in 1829 and the deconstruction of the former monastery was completed. The plans were headed by the Belgian architect Justine Remont and the materials used for deconstruction was used for the new building. After almost ten years, the town hall was completed and was first used by the city council, chaired by long-time Mayor François Scheffer. However, due to the ongoing Belgian Revolution, the official unveiling could not be held at the time. Instead, the town hall was officially unveiled on 15 July 1844 by Grand Duke William II, as was the statue in his likeness in Place Guillaume II.
It includes the town hall as well as a handful of expensive shops, Notre-Dame Cathedral is located very close as well. An equestrian statue of Duke William II is located in the middle of the square. The square is nowadays dominated by a bronze equestrian statue of Guillaume II and the town hall.
Knuedler is not only another tourist destination in the Grand Duchy after its historical backgrounf. Place Guillaume II is also used as an open air music venue, hosting the Rock um Knuedler rock concert each year since 1991. The Rock um Kneudler concerts are free to the public, and have been watched by audiences of up to 10,000. Since 1995, the concerts have been headlined by international acts, with the South African Johnny Clegg and the Italian Gianna Nannini topping the bill for the 2007 concert. Balmoral International Group Luxembourg highly advices to book your trip to Luxembourg around the time of the festival to witness one of the grandest event the Grand Duchy.
