Casemates du Bock, Luxembourg City

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
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.

  • Lovely place to visit if you like fortifications. In some areas it can get a bit dark and narrow, but I think that adds to the charm. Great views of the city.
  • Lovely views of this place from any angle. Never really did much else other than walk past it. It is very picturesque though.
  • One of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and in the middle of the fairy tale kingdom of Luxembourg this maze of caves is a beauty overlooking the city.
  • Very interesting and historic part of town. Just be aware that the information signs are only in German and French if you are hoping to learn anything specific.
  • Interesting place. Be sure to reed the history to get a better impression.
