This citadel is on the opposite side of the road to the Boch Casements. You can walk around on the top and then there is a winding path down to the river where you get more great views. Be aware it's quite a lot of climbing though, although the paths and steps are in good condition.

As we were riding around with our guide we stopped numerous times to take photos of these ruins. The topography of this city is breathtaking whether looking up or down.

Interesting place to visit. Lots of tunnels to explore. Sadly most of the rooms have been bricked off though so they're now inaccessible. So it's literally only tunnnels and two cannons that you can see. Regardless, it's an impressive building.

One of many forts and battlements and caves built into the hills around Luxembourg City. Great to explore on foot. You can photograph and explore to your heart's content. It's very picturesque and lovely.

Took a stroll on a weekend, unluckily that day it was drizzling all day. I found it while taking a walk to the Grund. Good views, some of them are old walls with garden and river flowing alongside. Good for one time visit if you are in the city.
