Discover and visit the city of Luxembourg

Immerse yourself in the impressive range of tourist sites you could only dream of in this bustling and lively cosmopolitan city, that has still managed to maintain its human side! Luxembourg-City is full of history, brimming with artistic and cultural treasures just waiting to be visited, full of attractions and picturesque spots just waiting to be discovered, sprinkled with anecdotes and legends just waiting to be told.

The city of Luxembourg has been a real textbook case of European military architecture and it has changed hands many times throughout its existence. Italian, Spanish, Belgian, French, Austrian, Dutch and Prussian engineers all played a part in the progressive extension of the fortifications of this stronghold. Some of their work still remains and what remains reflects the very soul of Luxembourg tourism! The fortifications and the old town have been classified as world heritage sites by UNESCO since 1994. Discover the contrasts of a city in the heart of Europe - 365 days of the year!

Welcome to the heart of Europe and enjoy exploring Luxembourg-City.

Visit the Bock Casemates!

Belonging to the UNESCO World Heritage, the first underground tunnels were built in 1644, in the era of the Spanish domination. The 23-kilometre long galleries were enlarged only 40 years later by Vauban, the French military engineer and fortress builder, and in the 18th century by the Austrians. The fortress ramparts and the historically impressive Old Town enjoy international reputation: in 1994 UNESCO listed them as World Heritage.
