Bock - Review
Once proudly called as the ‘Gibraltar of the North’, the casemates is an artistic amalgamation of architecture and nature. Built by count Siegfried in 16th century, the bock promontory is an intriguing and complex network of 17 kilometer tunnels which were fortified and demolished in the later period of time. Today, visitors visiting the Bock can walk down the streets while enjoying the placid view of the river flowing beneath. The place has a historical feel to it and is a perfect for people to wish to bask in the beauty of this architectural artifice.

Bock, Luxemburg City Reviews
This is a pretty cool place. Not to recommend if you have a bad knee of hip or similar. I cannot image anybody having fun in there with a wheelchair – at least as far as all the stair cases are concerned. (There are bathrooms that should be accessible with a wheelchair though.) You can get some nice views from all the balcony-like windows in the rock-face. I believe a tour (which I did not do) is recommended since there is a ton to know about the place. If you don't want to take a tour, you'll enjoy all the rock and structures surrounding you. Especially the spiral stair cases are quite a sight.
We took out two girls (3 & 5 years old) into the caves. They loved it the excitement of exploring what’s next or down the steep spiral staircases was a great adventure. The leaflet issued to you as you pay is good but there could be a better signage or suggested direction especially on some of the small spiral stair cases. Apart from that it was well worth a visit and I’d happily recommend going again.
Excellent place to visit in Luxembourg city. Luxembourg city is not huge so not lots to see but this is one thing you should visit. It is a series of under ground tunnels and caves which were part of the original fortifications of the city (wear good shoes as there is very uneven ground and steps etc). There is an entry charge. After visiting this there is an excellent walk around the walls of the city with more history of the defences (this is free and well worth doing).
Our entry was included with the Luxembourg card, but if you pay it is well worth the money as we spent such a long time seeing almost everything (one section was closed). Make sure to pick up a map/guidebook at the front desk as there is no information as you go round. Well worth a visit!
One of my favorite things about this city. Full of history and has beautiful views over the valley. I recommend taking the guided tour that happens in the spring till autumn.
