Casemates du Bock, Luxembourg City

4.2
#1 of 13 in Parks in Luxembourg
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.

    Matte houses are a must for anyone visiting the city of Luxembourg, the ticket should be included with your citypass. You can take a fascinating walk between the ramparts benefiting from numerous glimpses from where you can admire the view of the city.

    Very impressive structure. Worthwhile as small underground adventure. To get in the back corners, you should be quite sure-footed. Very narrow spiral staircases with oncoming traffic!

    If you're going to go here, be prepared for a lot of climbing. Be careful when going up or down the stairs as they're slanted. Bring a torch (or phone flashlight) and remember where you've been. It will make leaving easier. It's quite easy to get lost here, there are a lot of dead ends.

    Really nice experience. Its basically a cave with many paths. If you are not into it is better not to go. However i loved the experience, the view is great and its a big area down there.

    Great view both frommtge bridge and down below from the canon ports and windows. Guided tour is great if you are interested in history.

    Take the tourist train (45min) and you can see a lot. The traffic is sometimes busy so this is a good option. Sit back and relax.

    Was nice and interesting. But i think what would make it truly interesting is the stories that go with it. But for that you need a tour.

Where to stay in Luxembourg City

With 24 districts making up Luxembourg City, you might have a hard time choosing what neighborhood you like best. For starters, look at accommodations in Ville Haute, the medieval center, where you’ll be at the heart of the city and within walking distance to main attractions as well as public transportation. If stunning views are what you’re after, look into Ville Basse, a central neighborhood in the city’s gorge. Gare is also well-located, home to the city’s main train station as well as many lively restaurants and cafes filled with locals. Whether you stay in one of the city’s few hostels or a hotel, be prepared for high prices.
