Wenzeer Circular Walk

Time-traveling tour connecting upper and lower towns: "Bok" Cape, old city area, Wenceslas Circular Wall, Alzet Valley, and its unique defensive works. The European Commission has rated this hiking trip as an "outstanding" cultural itinerary.

The Luxembourg Castle, also known as the Bock Fortress, is located in the northeast corner of the old city area of Luxembourg. Its rocky cliff towers are surrounded by the Alzette River on three sides and have strong natural defense capabilities. The future prosperity and development of Luxembourg were also derived from the "Little Castle" built here by Count Siegfried in 963. Numerous fortifications, attacks, and reconstructions have made the castle a witness to history, with Burgundians, Habsburgs, Spaniards, Prussians, and French all competing for this military fortress. It was not until the 1867 "London Agreement" requiring the removal of defenses that the war was stopped. Although the powerful walls no longer exist, the castle still attracts visitors from all over the world, and the magnificent underground art galleries and corridors still amaze people. Initially built in 1644, the castle was located in a military fortress dug into the mountain, and after expansion under the guidance of French military engineer Vauban, it became a daunting project. There are 23 kilometers of underground tunnels beneath the castle, with underground defense channels built at different geological levels and extending 40 meters below ground. Although the fortress was demolished in 1867, the original appearance of the batteries is still preserved within the 17-kilometer-long city walls, which were listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. Inside the castle, visitors can not only admire the underground fortifications and battery appearance from the past but also learn about the detailed introduction of the fortress and exhibits of some historical relics, making the castle an important site to understand Luxembourg's military history.
The defensive walls of Grund area on the Alzette River are now one of the most beautiful viewing platforms in Europe. The walls used to have steep steps and served a defensive function, but the outer protective walls have now been removed, creating a gentle 360-degree viewing platform that allows people to fully appreciate the beautiful scenery of the Grund Valley.

Neimingster - lungunt Cultural Center

During the war between King Francis I of France and Emperor Charles V of Germany, the Benedictine monastery of Altomünster was destroyed in 1542, leading the Benedictine monks to establish a new monastery church in the outskirts of Glandorf. The Neumünster Monastery consists of a church and four wings, surrounding an inner courtyard.

Rahm Plateau

In the past days, people lived on this highland, which was washed by the Alzette at three high points. After the 15th century, the third ring connected it to the protected part of the city. At the end of the 17th century, under the rule of France, Vauban established four military camps, which have housed social institutions since the 19th century. From the front of the Rham plateau, visitors can enjoy the military buildings and defense facilities of the Holy Spirit plateau and the magnificent scenery of the so-called Corniche.
