Bock Casemates (1 hr)
One of the oldest historic sites to visit in Luxembourg is the Bock Casemates. Ages ago when the city was one of the most envied fortresses in Europe, many ‘bomb-proof’ rooms and alleys were made in the old historic walls of the city.
The Casemates is an immense underground military defence system. It’s great to travel back in time and taste the history of the city and feel the violent battles that took place here.
For only 3 euro you can enter these caves. The opening hours are 10 am to 5 pm, but only from the 1st of March until the 31st of October. Make sure to bring a jacket, as it can be a bit cold inside.
National museum of History and Art (2 hrs)
A wonderful museum in the old centre of Luxembourg is the museum of National History and Art. It is situated in a very modern building, but inside you will find old walls and a lot of history.
You start in the basement at level -5 with the prehistory. While you ‘travel’ up in the building you go along the Roman period and Middle Ages until you reach the present and modern art.
The opening hours are from 10 am to 6 pm (Thursdays until 8 pm). The entrance fee is 5 euro. The museum can be found at Marche-aux-Poissons just behind the Palace of the Grand Dukes.
Tourist train (1 hr)
The train departs from Place de la Constitution from the Adolphe Bridge viewing point. A tour takes one hour and costs 8,50 euro per person. Trains depart from early morning until the evening.
City promenade walking tour (2 hrs)
If you missed the tour or like to do a walking tour on your own, at the City Tourist Office at Place Guillaume you can get a brochure and map of the Wenzel Circular Walk, which will bring you to a lot of historic places and great viewing points as well. You only miss the explanation of the guide, but can do everything private and in your own pace.
Saint Martin winery in Remich (½ day)
They are not in Luxembourg City but there are some in the vicinity of town. Saint Martin Winery is located in Remich at 53 Route de Stadtbredimus. The easiest way to go there is by car. Then it will take you only 25 minutes to go there. It’s also possible by public transportation. From Luxembourg you need to take a bus to Remich, and from there you take another bus to Saint Martin.
For a few euros you can get a tour through the winery and the cellars. They will tell you all about the production process and at the end you have to taste some wines of course. And when you come by car, you can buy some wines and bring them, as they are not widely exported.
Saint Martin winery is open every day from 10 am till 12 and from 2.30 to 5.30 pm, except on Mondays. They are also open during holidays.
