The City of Luxembourg (Ville de Luxembourg – VdL) College of Mayor and Aldermen has announced the inauguration of the "Fiischen" monument after restoration set to take place on Wednesday 5 June at the Place Guillaume II at 16:30.

As part of the recent redevelopment of Place Guillaume II in Luxembourg-Ville, the monument with its associated fountain and the balustrade running along the Luxembourg City Hall were restored to state-of-the-art standards.

The inauguration was organised in order to highlight the know-how of the artisans involved in this restoration and to honour the research and reflections carried out in this context by all those concerned, the College of the Mayor and Aldermen noted.

In 1872, the writer Michel Rodange (1827 - 1876) published his first fable entitled Renert or de Fuuß am Frack an a Ma'nsgrëßt (the fox in a tailcoat and of a man’s height), a tribute to the landscapes and territories of Luxembourg which is also a critical look at the society of the Grand Duchy. 60 years later, on 26 June 1932, the "Fiischen" (a limestone and sandstone monument representing the famous fox from the animal fable and designed by the artists and sculptors Jean Curot, Jean-Théodore Mergen, François Demuth and Ernest Grosber) was inaugurated in honour of Michel Rodange, probably the most famous Luxembourg author of the 19th century.
