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.

I suppose it was worth going to see but it was all the same from the top to the bottom, it involves lots of stairs although if you are not good with the stairs you could just miss these bits out as they are the same as what you have already seen.

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.
