"Den Huëlen Zand" / Dent Creuse / Hohler Zahn / Hollow Tooth has nothing to do with historical accuracy and was put there after the magnificent fortress was dismantled in 1867. In the original ledgers, there is mention of a contract to build "eine romantische Schlossruine"; if you will, a romantic Disneyland backdrop to wing the imagination of British travellers... More

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.

Well, I really can't say a whole lot about this. I though it was neat to look at and imagine what it might have looked like when it was in one piece. I ran into this following the tour guide map I received at the tourist info center. This is right at the Casemates. Otherwise the views of Luxembourg from... More

If you're staying at the Luxembourg youth hostel then this is right on your doorstep. If not, it's a short 5 min walk from the main city. An important piece of history for the city so worth visiting. You can enter the ruin to a viewing balcony at certain times of the day but if visiting out of those hours,... More

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
