- Wow that's impressive, were the defences ever put to the test?
- I don't think these specific fortifications were put to the test. However during the Franco-Prussian war the city fell after a month and a half siege in 1870. The city was heavily fortified then in fact it was considered one of the strongest fortress cities in Europe at the time. Its works were likely an outgrowth of these but I'm not 100%. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Strasbourg Read more comments
