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. Try get a pic with the cannon and in one of the toilets if you can. Oh and wear comfy trainers... More

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

Though it isn't as jaw dropping as most people may make it sounds, it's one of those things you must see just to say you did it. It's 3 Euros entrance for adults and a pretty neat experience. If you don't want to spend the money, I can tell you now that my favorite part of the casemates was the... More

We walked through the casemates on our own - in some places it was a tight squeeze and the roof/walls were quite narrow. There were interesting views of the city from many of the portals and it was well worth the small entrance fee.
