We give a complete description of gradings by abelian groups on certain classes of nilpotent Lie algebras, including Lie algebras of maximal class. This has consequences concerning symmetries on homogeneous spaces of nilpotent Lie groups. These results are joint with Elizabeth Remm and Michel Goze (Univesite de Haut Alsace, France).
