Took a stroll on a weekend, unluckily that day it was drizzling all day. I found it while taking a walk to the Grund. Good views, some of them are old walls with garden and river flowing alongside. Good for one time visit if you are in the city.

The location currently hosts the Justice Courts ofLuxembourg, which is a good idea, as you have them all in the same location. The subteran parking is very useful, too. From here you can have a complete view of the Grund and you can take the elevator to theGrund. Here you can find an artezian fountain and benches to rest.

These city ruins were fantastic. And much larger than we originally thought. The views from the rooms over the city were gorgeous. And inside was fascinating how everything connected. Not to be missed.

Possibly visit this in the summer as it get´s quite cold in the cassemattes during winter. Quite cheap last time I went and offers a nice insight into the history of the city

We didn't anticipate how beautiful and interesting this tour would be. We went in the fall and the colors along the river were spectacular.
