'An American in Luxembourg' exploring the Pétrusse Casemates

Mike McQuaide, known on social networks as 'An American in Luxembourg', gives you a glimpse into the Pétrusse Casemates. Dive into the depths of the city with him!


Mike McQuaide is a dual U.S.-Luxembourg citizen and has lived in Luxembourg City since 2013. He is an avid road cyclist and mountain biker, and is author of several books including “An American in Luxembourg” and “75 Classic Rides: Washington,” a cycling guide to America’s Washington State.

"My exploration of the newly renovated Petrusse Casemates was not only fun, but also a pleasant surprise. I’d been here before in 2013 and while back then, I found it fascinating and unlike anything I’d ever been to before, I remember it as being a bit dark, and I felt a tad claustrophobic in places. No more.

After extensive enhancement and security works, the casemates are now well-lit, the tunnels feel more open, and cool additions such as interpretive signage, and the light/audio show detailing the casemates’ history add to the experience. A definite must-visit when you’re in Luxembourg-City."
