Edmond de la Fontaine

Above the Church of the Trinitarians, the Dicks Monument commemorates our national poet Edmond de la Fontaine (1823-1891), who died at Vianden, where he had been conciliation magistrate from 1881 to 1891. He was the author of the first Luxemburg’s comedies and won a considerable fame under the pen-name «Dicks". A tablet fixed to the poet's home above the Cross of Justice honours the poet's memory. In the «Dicks House" you may see to-day the bakery museum.
