Loved in the little places where you could take pictures of the city. You can use your Luxembourg card to get in free.

Came across this a little by accident. 6 year old son wanted to go in, so we did. It was a very hot day so the coolness from being underground was welcome. There wasn't a great deal of explanation, a couple of cannon could be seen. But it was easy to get a feel for what went on. A cheap... More

Nothing is really amazing here. It is just like a lot of rock caves with many dead ends inside. There is nothing amazing inside, the only thing you can see is old cannon. However in some spots, you can get a nice view of monastery below.

It probably helps if you read up a little about Luxembourg history to fully enjoy; however, if you're just a casual visitor it is still very nice visiting this part of Luxembourg; away from the business and shopping center. Luxembourg is a very walkable city; we parked our car in the city center and just started walking. Touring through and... More

Interesting to imagine what went on in these casemates...but you have to imagine, as they are empty. There aren't plaques or signs explaining what room contained what or what happened when...you just have to read the (albeit nicely detailed, with map) flyer they give you on entry...which is hard in the dark. Fairly cheap (3 Euro) so something to tick... More

Nice and cool on a warm summer day. Visiting tunnels under city forts. They were used as shelters during World War II, but their history goes back to the XVth century. Too many steps to go up and down.

I liked the hiking up and down the damp corridors and steps, this added to the experience. The lady guide spoke good English and was very pleasant (maybe lacking some depth to her knowledge on the history of the place). My daughter (15) didn't complain, so that's a big plus and must mean it's something interesting for families. Views were... More

This was a very nice and informative tour. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and quite charming. She talked us through each section. All in all a great little tour although there were a lot of steps.

Casemates du Bock has been a UNESCO's world heritage site since 1994. It attracts some 100,000 visitors a year. The admission is 3 euros, which gives an access to a few kms worth of casemates and an hour or so of fun exploration. I really enjoyed this attraction. If you have children definitely take them there. But again, don’t be... More
