Incredible history! The tour is very well done and just long enough to give you some great information without becoming boring. Perfect for a rainy day as well! Highly recommend this on your visit to Luxembourg City!

While the views may not be as spectacular as from the Bock casemates, they are very impressive. The maze of tunnels and the height of these enforcements make one realize why Luxumbourg was indeed a true fortress. Well worth a visit and make sure you add some time to your visit in case you get lost in the tunnels (I did!). Lots of stairs to climb, so I would not recommend to someone who has mobility problems. Also, some low ceilings in the tunnels in certain places (mind your head).

Great place to visit lots to see and great location for pics. Lost of stairs and walking they do have a handicap ramp so if you are like my family with a stroller use it. Also if you have a infant carrier use that for your babies great place to visit even with small kids not to cold or damp

I booked this tour two months in advance (booked in June for 8/7). A week before I received an email that they would be closed on the date of my reservation. This was already disappointing, but the reason for my low review is because they refused to refund me unless I provided my bank routing (SWIFT) number and account number via email or written down on a paper form (when I visited in person). This seems extremely insecure as anyone with this information could transfer money from my account and this information is accessible to anyone working there.

I am now having to fight the transaction via my bank to get refunded. Be aware of this limitation when booking with the City of Luxembourg in advance.

First things first, if you're tall (like 6 foot) you will have to duck or walked stooped over nearly the entire time. Don't let that discourage you from seeing this, however. The casemates are really awesome and there's a cannon dating from the 10th century there. They're damp and there are quite a few steps to climb when you go. It costs 3 euro a person to go and they give you a pamphlet that explains everything, they also had guided tours that went (I don't quite remember all the times) for sure at 15.00, 16.00 and 17.00 (I think). I'm glad I went, I also learned that they've only been open to the public since the 1930s. The casements also served as shelter from bombardments during both world wars and could house like 30 something thousand people. Don't miss out

The Petrusse casemates are only open in summer and you can only visit in a guided group, which is good, otherwise you could get lost beneath the city! You go through a vast network of narrow, dank tunnels which have played a part in all major events of the city's history for hundreds of years. Starting from the top of the Old Town where the tour busses park, you burrow, literally, all the way down to the valley below, and then back up. The guides are good and the stories all along the way are interesting. It's slippery going in places, with steep, uneven steps. Wear flat, comfortable shoes (not recommended for very claustrophobic types).

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 a little disappointed with the overall experience of our self-guided tour (guided ones didn't in with our plans) as there were very few information boards, and those that we did see, none of them had an English translation, yes you get a 1 page leaflet in English on entry but for 350+ years of history this just didn't cut it for me.

There seems to be no recognised route once inside and In certain areas it is that dark it is hard to see where you are putting your feet.

Not a place for wheel chair users or people who are infirm or who have mobility issues.

It's a UNESCO world heritage site so has plenty of funding, needs to have multi lingual automatic audio tours installed so visitors can get a proper experience when they visit.

Definitely a must for first time visitors. I think a lot of visitors don't know what is directly under their feet when wandering about above. It was only €4 (adult) entry. There are warnings for the elderly and people with heart problems which I thought seem quite valid. There are several long spiral stair cases to climb up and down. The steps are very narrow at times but can be managed with some care. Gives a good feel of how people historically used the fortifications.

Our family really enjoyed touring this ancient site. We explored each and every crevice. It really helps the experience if you read the information they give you at the ticket counter. There are interesting stories and myths hidden in those walls! Yes, there is a lot of walking, but if you travel to Europe, you should expect a lot of walking! Our family felt it was worth the energy to check out the casemates.
