It did not take long to do all of the Casements. There was a 3 euro entrance fee. They were cave like tunnels and some spiral stairs cut into the stone that went down forever it seemed. It was a little claustrophobic but since it did take long it was fine.

An intimate and revealing experience of medieval life above the Grund. The way the wind and noises carry through the rock and caves draw one back in time to a harsh and romantic age. The steep and tight stairwells are a challenging but rewarding climb and descent, and going in and out of the various view ports is increasingly moving, though the peak of the attraction is found in the central depths of the complex. Well worth the time, and don't forget to get a memorial coin as a souvenir.

I really enjoyed walked around the ramparts and fortifications of the city. It started right here at the Casemates du Bock. The views from this area are fantastic. I was there on a Sunday so there wasn't a lot open and what was seemed to be under renovation.

They are very well kept.
You have to pay 3€ but they deserve it.
Lots of place to walk underground and very different views of town.
They were built in XVII Century and you can have an idea of the hard life that soldiers had there
