In 1963 the Municipal Authorities and the State decided to set up a monument at Montée de Clausen at the Bock Promontory to celebrate the millennium of the capital.
During the works in progress, the foundation walls of the first stronghold of Count Siegfried of Ardenne, were uncovered.
Consequently the original plans for the monument were discarded to the benefit of a partial reconstruction as well as a completion of the foundation walls.
Since then the restored Bock Plateau has attracted visitors, bearing the name of Monument of the Millennium of the City of Luxembourg.
