Dent Creuse means Hollow Tooth in English. This place is quite important for the inhabitants of Luxembourg City, as it marks the original birthplace of this city. It was but a small part of what Count Siegfried of Lorraine built in 965 A.D. Access to it is for free, but then there isn't much to see. Still it adds to... More

There's not much to say about the Dent Creuse, but for a jutted piece of stonework, it held my attention for longer than I'd expect. You'll see this on your way to the Bock Casemates, which you should most definitely tour.

I was climbing the steep up-hill from the youth hostel of Luxembourg and that was my first glance, before enjoying the magnificent views to the Grund. It is the only touret remaining from the original castle. It is not so impressive if you examine it thoroughly ... but to me it had a "striking effect" as it arised in front... More
