The bridge offers some look-out points and (remains of) towers, but I found this to be the most impressive one. It is photogenic and from the top you will have great views on the surrounding area.

This ruin itself is not that spectacular. The views and walking around the Bock Casemates is fantastic. Spend a bit of time in this area. It is definitely worth it.

You will find the remains of the old fortifications. There are lots of explanations available about the origins history and destination of the buildings. It is a nice view too.

It's close walking distance to other great attractions in Luxembourg City, but Dent Creuse itself wasn't exciting at all. We just happened to pass it walking to the Catacombs. It's free to visit, it's just out in the public.

It is a historic site, yes - but really there is not much to see. Only positive is that it can be easily be combined with other sites.

This is considered to be of extreme historic significance as this is the origin point of the city. But unlike other historic buildings of Luxembourg, this is only mildly interesting.

"Den Huëlen Zand" / Dent Creuse / Hohler Zahn / Hollow Tooth has nothing to do with historical accuracy and was put there after the magnificent fortress was dismantled in 1867. In the original ledgers, there is mention of a contract to build "eine romantische Schlossruine"; if you will, a romantic Disneyland backdrop to wing the imagination of British travellers... More

Dent Creuse means Hollow Tooth in English. This place is quite important for the inhabitants of Luxembourg City, as it marks the original birthplace of this city. It was but a small part of what Count Siegfried of Lorraine built in 965 A.D. Access to it is for free, but then there isn't much to see. Still it adds to... More

There's not much to say about the Dent Creuse, but for a jutted piece of stonework, it held my attention for longer than I'd expect. You'll see this on your way to the Bock Casemates, which you should most definitely tour.

Well, I really can't say a whole lot about this. I though it was neat to look at and imagine what it might have looked like when it was in one piece. I ran into this following the tour guide map I received at the tourist info center. This is right at the Casemates. Otherwise the views of Luxembourg from... More
