Les Trois Glands, Luxembourg City

Known locally as Three Acorns, Les Trois Glands represents a fortress in the city's Dräi Eechelen park. The local name comes from the three acorns that decorate the top of the three towers. The original fortress was destroyed in 1867, and the fully restored structure opened in 2012. The fortress houses a history and art museum in a modern, glass complex. Weaponry, armor, and artwork are displayed in the museum galleries alongside the history of the fortress itself. You can inspect important documents about the early history of Luxembourg, such as maps, books, and documented agreements that are displayed in French and German. Guided tours of the old fortress tunnels are given on certain days. The city tourist office provides walking maps that lead you to the fortress' entrance and through the adjoining park.

  • Nice place, nice views, which applies to the whole of Luxembourg so doesn’t make this a destination in itself, but it surrounds the definitely worth seeing Mudam and is worth a brief diversion.  more »
  • Cute, pleasant park, good for solo walks and family walks, as well. Nice place to unwind a bit. The deer statue is just hilarious ;)  more »

  • It was on a Sunday noon of 7/16/2017. I've parked my car here and walk all the way to town. On my way back, I got a blister on both of my feet and a muscle cramps. I have to said it's quite a work out.
  • Places a little too tight
