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.

  • Maybe I'm being presumptuous in saying that only Luxembourg has casamates as sightseeings. Therefore, it is worth visiting and wander around. Probably going to be something unlike anything you've ever seen because the structures and architecture. You will also have a privileged view of some parts of the city. However, I believe that after a while, you'll notice a lot of similarities during their walk.

  • A labyrinthine adventure which in my opinion is better to be accompanied. The Casemates are strengths which began to be built in 1644 and they are full of history, currently considered world heritage by UNESCO. Are kilometers of tunnels and nooks and crannies of stone that can be quite scary if is is only. Visited in June and there was practically no one, made the journey on my own and was like being single. There are stairs in super snail narrow and with tiny steps that must look well where is depressed to not finish rolling, especially because the stone is very worn. The corridors are endless and if one ventures and starts up and down some stairs of them end up in places where the environment gives chills, the silence is total and there is nothing dignified scene of horror movie, the only way out is back up where it went down. If we approach the small windows overlooking the Alzette Valley views are incredible. In summary, it is a place that kept very Virgin, can be visited with children since the areas that give the Valley are spacious and offer beautiful views without doing any effort; If the idea is to squeeze the most I recommend to visit them accompanied and taking into account that requires good physical condition because they go up and down very narrow and steep stairs without railings or protection.
