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!

Definitely a must for first time visitors. I think a lot of visitors don't know what is directly under their feet when wandering about above. It was only €4 (adult) entry. There are warnings for the elderly and people with heart problems which I thought seem quite valid. There are several long spiral stair cases to climb up and down.... More

Luxembourg city started as a fort in the middle ages. Many powers have ruled there later, such as the Romans, the Spaniards, the French, the Hapsburg, etc...The city shows evidence of all these rulers. I recommend seeing old town .

Based in the centre of Luxembourg this is an interesting attraction which takes you below ground into the casemates of the old city for a small fee. As you would expect this is cool, damp and involves a lot of steps, nothing too strenuous though. To be honest you only see a small part of the casemates. Our guide spoke... More

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
