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.

  • It was 6Euro entrance fee. The pictures from the top of the Casemates were better the pictures we captured inside. There was LOTS of stairs (wear shoes with a good grip) and it felt a bit claustrophob...  more »
  • And quite apart from the Luxembourg station and walk about 30 minutes a bus near Saint Michel Church in about 15 minutes. Weather permitting, views from the observation deck, especially here is clean and great photo spots. It overlooked the entrance to the Museum and the underground passage entrance fee 4 euro. During the week of the end of February and that day I am the one who did the visitors, but reception staff is nice. Underground passages and like in the maze, the cannon has been placed here and there. Day was nice and dark in the evening if one may be afraid. Not a very narrow stone staircase climbing up a place, so definitely good walking shoes and slips. Is the place you go to Luxembourg in smaller countries fewer attractions, take a look at feet worth.
