There was one guard outside marching up and down. He was very smartly dressed but eyed me with suspicion as I took hos photograph! It was not open... More

This was the original residence for the Royal family, these days it is only used for formal receptions, an amazing piece of architecture situated in a square in the heart of town, sadly not open to tourists except in the month of August, check out the guards

Centre of Lux City is so small, that you can't miss this if you are wandering around for awhile. We were lucky enough to be there were there were soldiers in their uniforms "changing guards" . Beautiful place, so worth of visit

Not a must-see but it's a nice place in Luxembourg city; as it's very close to the golden lady or the cathedral it's hardly possible to miss it. you should also take a look into the old-school record store in front of the palace..

The Palace is a very quaint building - lots of character. On the edge of a square near the heart of town. Occasionally see the "Changing of the Guards" - without the fanfare you find at Buckingham Palace! Definitely worth walking past.

The appellation of Palace is a bit of an overstatement . It's an imposing mansion with uniformed guards and assorted family crests. Would not plan a separate trip to visit it but It's conveniently located between Norte dame and Place Guillame .

The Duke's Grand Palace is open for visiting only in August, unfortunately we visited it back in October. Still the front looked impressive, especially the place guards which are a sight to behold

This one actually has someone still living in it, unlike most we saw in Europe. Guarded by soldiers this was a neat sight to see.
