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

I didn't realise how complex and quiet these tunnels were going to be! Brought out the explorer in me! Would recommend!

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.
