The casements are very impressive given it is a 21 kilometre network of underground passages with many cannon positions. They cover some 40,000 square metres and once housed thousands of troops, horses, equipment and kitchens. Simply amazing historical site.

This is a must do for the able bodied. You may get a little lost or disoriented, but it's part of the intrigue. The chambers are lettered so you will find your way out. It was fun to explore and imagine what it would have been like to be a soldier in defense of the city so long ago.

As this is one of key sights in Luxembourg I expected more and was kinda disappointed at the end. The beginning was promising as there are many balconies with amazing views of the vally below, but later there were just numerous dead ends with steep narrow stairs. We could bearely find our way back and the leaflet was no help... More

The vast underground military networks are truly impressive – steep, narrow staircases spiraling up and down for several floors, connecting chambers & dungeons like a spider web, spanning a surface area of 1.1 km2.

I loved this place! A series of caves, tunnels and chambers cut into the cliff face and used by soldiers during the many bloody conflicts the city has endured. You are given a guide and pretty much left to your own devices which is great. I enjoyed the wandering around aspect and some spectacular views across the city. Well worth... More

Takes around 40 minutes to explore the casements in full. a lot of stairs going up and down in half light and felt quite claustrophobic, although this became part of the little aventure.

Part of the defensive fortification in the Montée de Clausen. Wide and also very small corridors in the rock. TIP: good walking shoes which are skid-proofed

This was the main attraction that we visited spent some time running around the tunnels and enjoying the views over the city. Also sheltered us from the rain!
