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

We visited Luxembourg City whilst driving through to our next stop, having never been before we wanted to see what the city had to offer and we new the various casemates were a popular tourist choice. We parked in the city centre and took a walk around - not really having an agenda. Luxembourg as a city is very well... More

Casemates du Bock are a World Heritage Sight and rightly so. Just entering the casemates, makes you realize the sheer hard work put in by generations of laborers to build something so grand totally with hands. The sections are well numbered and description for each section is provided in the handouts given at the ticket counter. If you don't refer... More

The view is excellent. Sometimes not easy to pass through. It takes some time to see everything. But it is worthwhile.

We decided to visit the casemates and it was well worth it. You get a beautiful view of the city, as well as a pamphlet for a tour. We wandered through it at our own pace. It was fairly easy to get through, however, the small stairs to get to the tunnels makes it challenging. It was well worth it.

If you like history and adventuring in centuries old tunnels, that's the place to go visit. It is a nice place to learn about the history of Luxembourg and get a picture of what life must have been there. The view is breath-taking!

Impressive! Here you step in and on history. The Bock is a promontory in the north-eastern corner of Luxembourg City's old historical district, offering a natural fortification. It was here that Count Siegfried built his Castle of Lucilinburhuc in 963, providing a basis for the development of the town which became Luxembourg. Over the centuries, the Bock and the surrounding... More
