Unesco herritage site, so its a must see while in Luxembourg city. The history behind it is also interesting. For a little entrance fee (3 euro's (september 2014)) you can go and explore the site. The map in the flyer doesn't always work. At parts it is really a bit of a maze. Dead ends, steep stairs, not always enough... More

It is a major stop when you visit Luxembourg city. Note that there is opening hours and fees. The entrance located on the bridge/Montée de Clausen, is very close to the Chemin de Corniche so take a few minutes before entering the Bock to look around. When you enter, the map they provide you might not be very useful...in fact,... More

For a small entrance fee you go on a self guided tour of these old fortifications underground, watch your step, not for the unsteady. All around the submerged area which strange as it sounds is high above the City are openings which gives you fantastic views.

Absolute must see. We wandered around the whole thing twice. If you have eduroam you will have wifi! French and German only on all displays so get the audioguide if you really want to know what things are.

Get a ticket and self-guided pamplet for only a few Euros and you're on your way to discovering a fascinating piece of the history of Luxembourg City. I had a great time wandering through the many tunnels and looking out the windows on both sides of the tunnel system. Even if you're not too concerned with following the tour, it's... More

The Casemates du Bock in Luxembourg City offer the traveler a trip back to war times in Luxembourg. Truly a feat to behold, wandering through the protected casemates and peering down on the surrounding valley transports you to a different time and space in history. There are many information boards and tours available for history buffs, and the experience is... More

I think this is best visited as part of one of the self-guided historical walking tours that are available online and as printed handouts, so you have a better context to put them in. Some background reading would help in interpreting what you are seeing, as there is not a lot of English language interpretive signage. Lots of climbing up... More

Very unique and a lot of fun to wander round, only 3€ entry is a steal. A good idea would be to have an audio guide. Most of the signage is not in English and it was hard to know where you were with the map.
