Good news for history enthusiasts! The Bock Casemates will be re-opening their doors for tourists as of Friday 1 March.

The Casemates will remain open every day until 3 November, when the tourist attraction closes for the winter.

A fascinating insight into the history of Luxembourg City's fortifications, this is a top tourist attraction for those keen to explore the city. In the past, the Casemates were able to hold up to 1,200 soldiers. Alongside the old city, the Casemates make up part of Luxembourg's Unesco Cultural Heritage. Last year, the military fortifications attracted 130,463 visitors.

From April, there will be guided tours each day in French, German, and English.
