Casemates du Bock, Luxembourg City

#1 of 30 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.

  • This world Heritage site was very very impressive! The tunnels are very expansive and go on for quite a bit! Be prepared to duck, crouch, and potentially get lost! Bring comfortable shoes and be ready to get comfortable with low lighting. Awesome experience and lots of facts on the wall to learn!
  • A real beautiful historic sight, Unique place. This World Heritage site was very very impressive! Nicely organized, This is priceless to see. Peace and Nature with great ancient architectural significance, definitely worth a visit.
