Bock, Luxemburg City Reviews - Write a Review
Probably the main attraction in the city, often called 'balcony of Europe'! It's a beautiful place to go to. You can walk through the trails and centuries old tunnels. There are two lifts operating nearby, one of them with stunning view! The platform is made of glass even the floor so that you can look through under your feet! Caution: not for faint hearted! Enjoy travelling...
Nice if you like history and can understand what must have gone into building this. Some narrow staircases. Unfortunately very "touristy" dressed (spots, many signs etc...) However in some spots you do feel you are exploring and curiosity of what is behind the next corner takes over. Downside is that this never goes on for long and a lot of things just end in a dead way (closed doors or you just come back where you started)
A very interesting tourist attraction. It looks like just a dungeon in the mountains at the first sight. However, once you start exploring it, it becomes more and more interesting. In addition, it is also quite a good workout if you truly explored every corner of the site.
One of the main attractions of the city, a very nice place to visit and to work out after a good lunch. There are trails and tunnels into the rock. They give you a map with the rooms and tunnels but the drawing it’s not helpful. From its balconies there are some great views of the city.
Admission 6 euro. Good long opening hours. Closes 830pm Lots of stairs but not needed to see the main gallery. Lots of little balconies/lookouts. I imagine it would be nice at blue hour for photos. It was raining when we went. 4 stars as I think they can put some more informative boards/exhibits to break the monotony. Once you go past the entrance it's a longish winding tunnel that starts to look the same, only different sizes and some rocks have moss. Can be completed in 30 minutes with photo stops.
