  • It's a very impressive place. A good area to walk around. Near there is a great view of the city.
  • Luxembourg as is mix of Gothic and Baroque architecture and you would many building in the similar lines. Really nothing great to see Place that too alone from outside . its under maintenance till Mid Nov. Also Guard of honour is so simple that can not hold you. Square is good for some photos.
