We got there as they opened and seemed to almost have the place to ourselves. Great place to explore with fabulous views too. Very good value for money.

Even if you have visited plenty of caves and underground ways, the "Casemates du Bock" are an absolute must. Do not hesitate to take all the little paths in it as they are very adventorous. You can easily spend 2 hours in them!

Spectacular place for young kids to explore and learn a little about the history of the city. Also great views of the city. We loved that our dog could come and was welcome there too. Fun hour or so.

Even if you don't go into the Casemates itself, walking around the top gives you an amazing view of Luxembourg City and makes for a lovely little walk. The Casemates are fascinating as well and it's surprisingly easy to get lost, although not for long.

Recently visited the casemates in Luxembourg, very interesting place. It was a little claustraophic at times. The only negative is that there is absolutely nothing narrated in English so unless you are French or German you need to use your imagination! It is also a little claustrophobic in places...

After making an impromptu stop in Luxembourg, we came across the Casemite early the next morning. Without knowing too much, I was pleasantly surprised at what I found seeing as I knew little about Luxembourg before my arrival. If you find yourself in the area then it is well worth the time for a visit.

We expected there to be more to it than just a tunnels and stairwells. Maybe some signs explaining what things were used for or something. It also seemed rather small, we got around it in under an hour.

The Bock casemates are the vast underground system of passages and galleries at the Bock promontory and continue to be a major tourist attraction. Can be visited from March to October from the Rue Sigefroid. The stairs down from the entrance lead to the huge archaeological crypt where wall plates give an overview of the history of the fortifications. More... More

A EUR 3 entry fee lets you explore an underground world and get the feel for what it must have been like for people defending the city. Wear good shoes for walking, as the ground is uneven, and there are some tight, dark spaces, but for those who are up for exploring a bit, thus is a cool spot and... More
