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.

We were able to get great pictures from above and below. Amazing that people drive by this everyday. Majestic.

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.
