3.7/5 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.

  • The fortress ' three nuts "(or" Three Acorn, "yet"-in honour of Thüngen, Commander) was part of a larger defensive Fort, built in the early 18th century. In the mid-19-century fortress was completely destroyed and rebuilt (reconstructed) in 1990 year. New, but looks surprisingly nice. Inside the Museum entrance fee. If raberetes′ in confusing topography of Luxembourg, then visit worth it. Why something called a private topic "Thüngen, that is misleading, since" Les Trois Glands» = «Thungen.

  • You don't need to go into the showrooms of the Museum! But once inside, and down in the dressing room, because a course is similar to the Casemates. (see photo) Outside of super! Panoramic views of the city with ancient fortifications. Located right next to the Mudam and the Philharmonic Orchestra. 3 birds with one stone ;)
