I absolutely love the casemates. It fascinates me how people managed to build such great stuff back in the old days. It is especially nice to roam in these tunnels during a hot summer day where they offer great refuge from the sun. But be prepared to freeze during the winter months as the wind howls through these tunnels relentlessly

Not a lot to say about this - it was an interesting walk, but not very well sign-posted. Tourist board take note!!

It was the "Petrusse battery" in the Valey de la Pétrusse; They originated at a time when the Spanish were works and building large bastions in Luxembourg. Visits are organised.

There are a lot of casemates in the city centre of Luxemburg. They are illuminated and you can take nice pictures also with a view of the city wall. I visited on a rainy day.

You can only visit in the summer and due to the complex series of tunnels, can only be seen as part of a guided tour. Not for claustrophobes!

The casemites are worth a short visit when in Luxembourg to understand the historically fortress nature of the city. Some great views from the openings.

Great place to visit lots to see and great location for pics. Lost of stairs and walking they do have a handicap ramp so if you are like my family with a stroller use it. Also if you have a infant carrier use that for your babies great place to visit even with small kids not to cold or damp

What a charming place. This gives you a clue how people have lived centuries ago. Stairs and lots of climbing, so you have to be in a decent shape and take some comfy shoes!

4 euros to enter, lot of stairs to climb, can get very tiresome. But this is a must visit if you love history and old castles. There is a tour available with guide which is pretty cheap.
