In 963 Count Siegfried built his Castle of Lucilinburhuc on the Bockfiels (Bock), the castle was connected to the plateau through a drawbridge. In time, a settlement grew on the plateau which later should become Luxembourg. Because of its strategic position, the town was one of Europe's greatest fortified sites. The fortress complex was repeatedly reinforced as it passed from one great European power to another: the Holy Roman Emperors, the House of Burgundy, the Habsburgs, the French and Spanish kings, and finally the Prussians.

Today Luxembourg city has a population of about 100.000 inhabitants.
