This is obviously a must visit spot in Luxemburg. Ruins of an ancient castle in the middle of the city center. With a 4e admission fee you have the chance to experience this UWH attraction. To me the best part of this was the amazing sights of the many openings in the walls of the castle. Don´t miss this, while... More

Nice tour and interesting to see how they made all of it. The tour guide didn't seem to know more then necessary. Would been nice with some more history of what it would've been like to be there hundreds of years ago.

This old defensive pathways are chopped in the rocks, it has probably be an immense job to create them. You can wander around them for a small fee, it's cool inside on a hot summer day and the circular walk actually starts inside.

Be prepared for lots of steps (comfortable flat shoes necessary). The 40 min tour (fee 3 euros)with a guide is extremely interesting and I learnt lots of facts about the history of Luxembourg. Entrance is on the Consitution Square and there are tours every hour. There are bathroom facilities next to the entrance of the site. You have to be... More

Was keen to go down here and look around but after 20 minutes trying to find a way down we gave up and left. Shame the place looked very interesting.

The casemates in the city were my favorite sight to see. You can take a stroll through the cliffs where they built the casemates. It offers some really nice views and if the weather is good it makes for a really pleasant stroll. I think they close in the Winter time so its best to go in the Summer. Its... More

Especially if it's a nice day, this part of Luxembourg situated below St. Peter's cathedral and the casemates is fascinating for a short stroll. There are so many look outs and wonderful little photo spots it makes for a nice casual walk along the river. Maybe spend 1-2 hours around this area and you would have seen it all. Especially...

Our family really enjoyed touring this ancient site. We explored each and every crevice. It really helps the experience if you read the information they give you at the ticket counter. There are interesting stories and myths hidden in those walls! Yes, there is a lot of walking, but if you travel to Europe, you should expect a lot of... More

There are well preserved and well integrated into the regular comings and goings of locals. You will probably take photos of this from above anyway and if you end up along the water, you might as well go and take a look. Would give a "4" rating if there was actually something to do or more to see up close.... More

We went down to Luxembourg for the first time (mostly because we could) and spent over two hours walking through the caves. There are no markings or explanations of any type (French, English, German or the national language Luxembourgish). Nothing at all. And that was fine. There was enough to see and marvel that we did not need any more.... More
