Viewing the casements and tunnels and "portholes" was a really nice time and I recommend visiting (I actually recommend all the sights to see in Luxembourg - it is such a beautiful place).

Do try and take the guided tour as one cannot fathom the history and the evolutions of these Casemates without a good guide like Yvonne. I learnt more history of the city than anywhere else. Absolutely fantastic

Walked from our Hotel and visited the Petrusse Casmates - it took around 2 hours and certainly worth the pleasant walk.

Take the Petrusse Express trolley down and see the valley and all the surrounding buildings, Casemates and structures. The Casemates itself is somewhat strenuous so know that before going in. From where the trolley leaves, is the stairway to buy tickets and enter the underground...More
