Museum Dräi Eechelen Fort Thungen Luxembourg

Historical fortress, symbol of the history of Luxembourg, the Thüngen Fort dates from 1732 and is known as “Dräi Eechelen” (Three Acorns) due to the particular shape of its acorn-shaped towers. Significant development work has been undertaken in recent years. What is left of the Fort Thüngen, known under the name “Dräi Eechelen” (three acorns) has undergone some serious renovation over the past few years. Partially knocked down in 1867, the remains of the fort have been updated, restored and rebuilt to house the Dräi Eechelen museum.
