Tickets to the Gëlle Fra

About Gëlle Fra

The monument is available to all visitors throughout the year at any time.

The best season to visit Gëlle Fra is spring: the weather is good, and there are fewer tourists in Luxembourg. We recommend going there on weekdays or in the morning to avoid crowds. Also, the monument looks particularly picturesque during the Christmas holidays, so this is also a great time to go there.

Gëlle Fra, also known as the Monument of Remembrance, is a memorial to soldiers from Luxembourg who fought during WWI, WWII, and the Korean War. Here are some of the things you can do here:

  • Take a look at one of the most famous landmarks in Luxembourg. The monument consists of three bronze statues. One of the statues is gilded and stands atop a tall granite obelisk; it’s a statue of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory. Two bronze statues at the foot of the obelisk symbolize soldiers from Luxembourg: one has given his life in service to his country, while the other is mourning his comrade’s passing.
  • Admire a beautiful view of the city. Sitting atop the remains of the ancient Beck bastion, the area around the monument has a commanding view of the Pétrusse Valley and the Adolphe Bridge.
  • Take part in many events on Constitution Square. This square is home to the monument of Remembrance and a site of many events throughout the year. The local Christmas fair is a particular highlight.

You can find the Monument of Remembrance in Constitution Square in the Ville Haute quarter of Luxembourg City. There are several transport options to reach this monument: bus, light rail, or on foot.

Bus routes 10 and 18 are your best option. Disembark at the Centre, F.D. Roosevelt bus stop, turn back, and walk along Boulevard Franklin D. Roosevelt for four minutes until you reach Constitution Square. The closest tram station to the monument is Luxembourg, Place de Metz; however, it’ll take 20 minutes to walk from there.

What people say about Gëlle Fra

July 2022
VERY USEFUL as luxembourg is quite small and public transport with trams very good so all you need is the app and you have the best guide in your mobile phone.

I think this tour is around 15km long depending on your route. Some stops are hard to see on the map, but if you use google maps you should be fine. The tour is definitely not for elderly, children or disabled people as it goes up and downhill. You do see everything Luxembourg has to offer. However, if you’re not interested in museums this is nog for you as it passes all of them. The storyteller is obsessed with heels which is quite annoying. If you did the tour you’ll know what I mean!
