About this spot
The interior of this UNESCO World Heritage site can be visited by ticketholders.

The first underground tunnels were built in 1644. The 23-kilometre long galleries were enlarged by the French and later the Austrians. It is these impressive defence works that gave Luxembourg the nickname of “Gibraltar of the North”.

The fortress was dismantled in 1867, but 17 kilometres of the casemates were spared, left in good condition.

Since 1933 the Bock and Pétrusse Casemates have been open to the public and in 1994 UNESCO listed them as World Heritage.
