Les Trois Glands, Luxembourg City

(3.8/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
Known locally as Three Acorns, Les Trois Glands represents a fortress in the city's Dräi Eechelen park. The local name comes from the three acorns that decorate the top of the three towers. The original fortress was destroyed in 1867, and the fully restored structure opened in 2012. The fortress houses a history and art museum in a modern, glass complex. Weaponry, armor, and artwork are displayed in the museum galleries alongside the history of the fortress itself. You can inspect important documents about the early history of Luxembourg, such as maps, books, and documented agreements that are displayed in French and German. Guided tours of the old fortress tunnels are given on certain days. The city tourist office provides walking maps that lead you to the fortress' entrance and through the adjoining park.

  • very informative and very comprehensive for Luxembourg history enthusiasts (maps, weapons of all periods, photographs, busts, portraits). Many successive rooms in the underground of the former fort. Elevator to reach the exhibition on the construction of the famous Adolphe Bridge on the Pétrusse raised by Albert Rodange and Paul stayed. Nice Museum

  • A small Museum next to the MUDAM, a place of ballad if the time is there ready with beautiful panorama of the city. Attention appropriate footwear. I recommend especially in the late afternoon to sunset is really nice in the summer.
