This is next to Mudam, set in a nice park with great views of the old town. It is well worth having a look if you are the area. Lots of history and beautiful views.

Visit inside the fort requires admission, however you can explore the outside walls for free! We took a nice walk down towards the Casemates (20 minutes).

I was disappointed in the way the museum was presented. The 'guards' behind the reception desk were not inviting. They spoke in a very guttural French (I think!) which was difficult to understand (not a problem experienced elsewhere in Luxembourg). The tariff list made no...More
