The Cradle of Luxembourg – Bock outcrop


The Bock outcrop was acquired in the year 963 by Count Siegfried of the Ardennes by way 
of exchange with the St.Maximinius Abbey in Trier.
The Bock outcrop became the feudal seat of the first Counts of Luxembourg,
who ruled their territory from here until 1354.

  1. J'adore le panneau interdiction de stationner, totalement anachronique dans ce haut lieu d'histoire ! J'ignorais l'existence de ce lieu, quelle impressionnante forteresse !

  2. What history you have all around you! This is amazing. It must be overwhelming sometimes to be in the middle of so much beauty. I think I would walk around with my mouth hanging open all the time. 🙂

  3. One of the few things I remember quite well from my visit long time ago. I wonder if I still have some pictures left…

  4. Right in the cradle of the city! It looks quite imposing and has stood the test of time well. Your photos are excellent, too. I had never realized what a fascinating history Luxembourg has!
