We visited the casemates to pass time whist in Luxembourg City. For €3 it was a bit disappointing, the museum at the beginning was written in German and French and once we had seen one cannon/tunnel, the rest looked the same.

When I arrived in Luxembourg, it was the first thing I visited. It was nice and fun to visit those tiny tunnels, but it stays average according to me.

The Casements are the remnants of the massive fortifications that surrounded Luxembourg until they were pulled down late in the 19th century. The fortifications were so extensive, however, they could not be completely removed without undermining the city themselves. A small museum tells parts of the story, but the real attraction is wandering through the labyrinthine tunnels of the old... More

Interesting place to visit, a fortress built inside a hill to avoid enemies attacks, 17 kms long. Not suitable for claustrophobics. On the no so good side, the information is not very good an we couldn't find a whole section shown in the map the gave us at the entrance

A few Euros gains access to a maze of underground tunnels, with some excellent opportunities for wider views of the curtain walls, turrets, and towers of the ancient fortifications surrounding the city. But not recommended for those uncomfortable in confined spaces. There are a number of narrow, and quite lengthy, spiral staircases on which it is extremely difficult to pass... More

My husband and I were just in Luxembourg city this weekend and were really looking forward to touring the casemates. Unfortunately, they were closed. When I mentioned to the employee at the visitors center that I wish I had know, she replied that it was on the website. It's not on the main page though. You have to download the... More

We visited the Bock area in February. Unfortunately you cannot go inside the casemates during the winter season but you can still visit the outside structure and read the info panels located all over the structure. If you're into the history of this amazing city its worth visiting even during wintertime. But just keep in mind that you wont be... More

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
