This was an interesting place to visit, but the route could be better sign posted as it was easy to miss bits. There are one or two dead ends which got quite congested as you don't know that you have to retrace your steps until your way is nlocked......a bit tricky on some of the steps. Otherwise an interesting way... More

A very interesting visit to what is left of the Bock fortifications. There are some very narrow stairs to negotiate if you pass under the Castle Bridge, which has five levels. There are some fine views over the Grund and Alzette river, so don't forget your camera.

Beware if you are claustrophobic and it is not great with young (overly curious) children and you can lose your footing, so beware when taking babies in!

Very interesting and unsual attraction- well worth a visit especially for 4 Euros. Be prepared for a few steps and spiral staircases.

Interesting place but difficult to follow as had to use a paper map and as it was very dimly lit it wasn't easy to follow. An audio guide would have been much better

These are really neat caves and tunnels in the cliffs of the city. There isn't much to see except to walk around them and you get some good pics of the valley from there. The price to get in was only 4 euros so it was worth it for that. If it was more I am not sure it would... More

There is not much to see in he city but this is the place to go if wandering around. You can also pay a visit to the museums they have nice collections. To be honest the Bock is not a thing is more like an area with old constructions so you will need time to wander around.

I came here because it is highly rated in "top things to do" in Luxembourg. However, to my surprise, it was nothing more than a cave matrix that I would like to play hide and seek with my children someday.

It was kinda interesting but the self guided tour isn't that great-hard to read the map-had to turn on our phone light. Needed more details to stay engaged.

The Casemates are a must on your visit to Luxembourg. That is, if you're interested in the history of the fortress rather than high end shopping. If it was the French master builder Vauban--who must have just come across the mathematics of fractals--that made the fortress of Luxembourg into the impregnable 'Gibraltar of the North', it was the Austrians who...
