Nice place to visit to get to know Luxembourg

This area gives you an insight in the fortifications around the Luxembourg city plateau and very close to the centre.

We were really looking forward to visiting the Casemates in Luxembourg, and with the Bock Casemates currently being closed (17 Aug 2016) we decided to visit the Petrusse Casemates. Entry fee for adults is €4 each which we thought was pretty good, and there are guided tours available a few times a day in different languages (extra cost). we were... More

I loved this, being an engineer, a lover of architecture, and archaeology. I learned a lot from a tour of the Petrusse Casemates at Brock. Vauban was senior military engineer, the finest builder of fortifications, and attacker of them of his era, for a hundred years. It was said that a city (under siege) taken by Vauban was a city...

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
