Monument of Dicks and Lentz

Description

Located on Jan Pallach Square, this historic monument was erected to pay homage to the two national poets Dicks (1823-1891) and Michel Lentz (1820-1893), who wrote the words of the national anthem.

The monument is topped by a lion, the heraldic animal of the Grand Duchy, while the blacksmith incarnates the steel industry.

The pillar contains a chiselled inscription, the wording of which is the motto of the Luxembourgers: “Mir wëlle bleiwe wat mir sin” (we want to remain what we are).
