Cute hour walk

When in Luxembourg city do go for a walk in the area and finish it off with one of their local beers. some of the spots look like they come out of a post card.

Walking always feels good, if it was a cold day, we walked around the castle and enjoy the magnificent view, I recommend this place if you want to be outside.

The casements were built in the 1600 as an enhancement to the Casement du Bock; look down from Constitution square and see a wonderfully manicured park, and a nice nature walk that takes you to the Adolphus bridge... but if you go down the steps of the left side of the tourist stand, you start to see the casement fortifications....

We chose to go in here as we were about to walk the walls when the heavens opened. It was definitely a good choice. The leaflet gave some history and information about the different areas inside. The ground is uneven and there are lots of spiral stairs so good shoes recommended. It was worth the €4 and we spent about... More

A bit confusing to manuveur but it's interesting... Wished there was more information about the history... Certainly some tight spaces...

Avoid if you are claustrophobic! It is really interesting to see how people lived and fighted during the war. You can navigate through the tunnels and even get lost for a moment until you see more people or open your map! It costs 4 euros per person or 3 euros for students.

I regard this walk as a must see to get and understand the spirit of the city of Luxembourg. various guided walks are offered but you can also just take a self guided version and enjoy

I absolutely love the casemates. It fascinates me how people managed to build such great stuff back in the old days. It is especially nice to roam in these tunnels during a hot summer day where they offer great refuge from the sun. But be prepared to freeze during the winter months as the wind howls through these tunnels relentlessly

Not a lot to say about this - it was an interesting walk, but not very well sign-posted. Tourist board take note!!

It was the "Petrusse battery" in the Valey de la Pétrusse; They originated at a time when the Spanish were works and building large bastions in Luxembourg. Visits are organised.
