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.

We enjoyed wandering through the casemates, and for €3, it was a very reasonable admission. There are a number of fantastic views of the valley through the tunnels out of the rock. Beware if you're claustrophobic, as the tunnels/halls get quite small.

I loved the ease of walking both the Wenceslas Walk and the Vauban Walk. The two are accessible to one another, and are of moderate difficulty, so many of the seniors who were there at the same time as I was, were able to take in the greater part of the route. The views from the ramparts are superb. The... More

impressive views, special atmosphere beneath the rock, but be aware that if it is windy and cool outside it also is down there

I had heard that this was the 'must see' of Luxembourg city. It was a fascinating experience, but I would have enjoyed it more if more information had been on display (I had a small pamphlet of English information) and perhaps guided tours on offer. Still worthy of a visit!
