What can I say? You'll be surprised how big that undeground complex is, as well as amazed when think what effort have been invest when thid underneath citadel was built. Just imagine. Up to 50 canons prepared for defense and 12hundreds soldiers accomodated within solid rock. Worth to see

I didn't realise how complex and quiet these tunnels were going to be! Brought out the explorer in me! Would recommend!

I went there in November and the tunnels were closed. The views were still nice but I would have enjoyed going through the tunnels.

Any trip to Luxembpurg should include a Visit of the casemates, as this something not many european cities have to offer, but provides great insight into how life must have been in the middle age and during the different wars that Luxembourg had to go through in it's rich history. Great for families too.

I always take visitors here (assuming they come between April and October since it's closed in the winter). Very interesting and great views across Luxembourg City. Be aware that some areas have uneven footing and a few are so small that anyone the slightest claustrophibic would not enjoy - but even if you only stay to the main areas, it's... More

We were a bit disappointed to find the casemates closed for the season. Will have to come back again! Hours as listed on the Luxembourg Tourist Office: Opening hours: 01.03.-31.10.: daily from 10am till 5pm.

Casemates du Bock started to be built in 963 by Count Siegfried and it quickly became the cradle of Luxembourg City. It's quite an interesting fortress. There are a lot of rough stone hallways and stairs that seems to lead nowhere. It's quite fun in fact, exploring every nook and climbing stairs that are so narrow that it becomes quite... More

3 Euros is all this cost and it was an amazing 45 mins. We had such a funny tour guide and he explained everything really well. The tour will mae you realise that life was extremely tough back then.

It is just on the other side of Viaduct, I think. The three bridges areb next to each other, and this site too. It is nice to visit I am sure. Today I went there, but they are under maintenance , and I met with a horrible storm weather, but still can see the beautiful landmark from the bridge.

Quite interesting if you like underground corridors. On the entrance, short history of Luxembourg is presented, with the main role Bock played in it. I liked the model of Bock and the castle, but it needs some cleaning. Bock is a rock above Luxembourg, and the corridors are carved in it. So even if you are "underground", you can have... More
