Very unusual and very atmospheric with a great view over Grund and Clausen. Fascinating history and easy to get lost but take a brochure/guide to get an understanding and to know where you are. While there also visit the other Casemates as well, but it is quite hard work and lots of stairs which are steep and it's dark and... More

Very interesting to wander through the excavated casemates and see where the cannons and mines were stored and positioned for defense of the now-demolished castle on top. Cheap admission. Be aware that there are many tight spiral staircases you go up and down on. Definitely got a workout on those steps - go slow for safety. Your reward is pretty... More

The remnants of an old fortress, built inside the hillside rock. There are many tunnels and paths that crisscross throughout the fort, and lead to various viewpoints and rooms. Long, winding staircases cut from the rock they are carved in lead, to the different levels and exits. You can spend an hour or two here, and there are some lovely... More

Real good value for the family and great fun rummaging around in the tunnels. Luxembourg has a fantastic history and this visit really made our visit to the xity complete. A must if you go there.

A really interesting underground world. When we stayed there, it was on one of the many rainy days, so it was a good idea to go underground. You have excellent sights from the open parts, to the city on the one side, and to the "Grund" on the other side. The rear parts of the casemates are nothing for claustrophobic... More

At only 4€ it's worth visiting just for the views over the gare. Well preserved and maintained the caves offer another side to Luxembourgs history.

Casemates du Bock is a very fun and interesting place. I loved walking through and exploring the tunnels. The air can be humid and this place is not suitable if you suffer from claustrophobia!

Went here with my sister and some friends. This place is on the UNESCO world inheritance for a reason. Whilst not the most exhilarating attraction of Luxembourg, the history behind it makes it exciting. And just to think about when and how this was creating is quite amazing. On top of that, one will get some of the best views... More
