Casemates du Bock, Luxembourg City

4.2
#1 of 26 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.

  • Since I am a native Luxembourger I have been here multiple times. Of course it becomes boring when you visit it too often. However, visiting it every few years is amazing and visiting it for the very first time even more so. You van actually experience a bit of history. Just be careful as the steps can be very narrow.
  • Very interesting place to see. Might be a bit triggering for those with claustrophobia in some places but there is a nice view on the city from that point. I'm giving 4/5 for the price to quality ratio. Overall, good experience and would recommend it to others visiting Luxembourg.
  • This is a 'must visit' place in Luxembourg. Ticket price is €6. Place is awesome. Read a bit before going. Guided tour would have been better, but I didn't see any guide around.
  • Very interesting touristic activity to walk a path inside a very old fortress. You can do it really fast just to have a different sightseeing of the Luxembourg city from several windows, or taking your time to read all the information and learn about it. Closed during cold moths, because it gets cooler inside, so great for summer. Sad that they closed a part of it to public so now is only a shorter walk than it used to be.
  • A view across the valley is absolutely a must for any tourist. Steeped in history this is the ultimate place to stretch your legs and do a bit of a walkabout. I do envy the people who actually live in this valley.
