Casemates du Bock, Luxembourg City

(4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Part of a World Heritage Site, Casemates du Bock once played a key role in a network of defensive underground passages. Originally stretching for over 20 km (12.5 mi), the honeycombed passageways housed garrisons of soldiers defending the city, along with their horses, weapons, and other essential equipment. Constructed in the mid-18th century, the casemates provided a shelter for nearly 40,000 locals during World War II. After exploring the city's underground history, enjoy sweeping views from the top of the casements. Expect lots of stairs and prepare for your walk by wearing a pair of comfortable shoes. Plan your visit to Casemates du Bock and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Luxembourg City itinerary maker.
