Built bu empress of russia for her lovet Count Birons, beautiful palace in baroque style, not too vast so makes an enjoyable 1.5 hr tour. You will be made to wear over shoe covers and the tour groups run side by side which can be awkward with several groups in one room. Beautiful paintings and furniture. Gardens not at the... More

This year we visited Rundale after a long time. The place has changed dramatically. We couldn't visit the palace itself, but the park was enough for having fantastic time. In July the roses garden is in full bloom. When you look through their beautiful arcs at the palace, it seems you are in a movie. Well-manicured alleys, round trees, benches... More

The approach to the palace is wonderful with farmers selling fresh berries. The palace tour is well organized. There are some interesting things to see and can be done in 1-1.5 hours. Make sure to visit the small restaurant in the basement and sample some fresh baked goods. This palace trip is only worthwhile if on the way to somewhere... More

A beautifully furnished recontructed palace. Guided tours are available in a variety of languages. Personally, I don't particularly like old buildings, but this was a good tour. The formal gardens ar spectacular.

The palace and the gardens are beautifully restored. The house with reconstructed furniture and furnishings, the gardens with thousands of roses. A restaurant, several cafes and souvenir shops, and a picnic area in the park at your convenience. Pay for the full ticket and you can see everything inside and out.

Visited en route from Vilnius to Riga on an escorted tour. It has beautiful gardens and the included tour was informative and very interesting. the interior is equally as impressive as the gardens. Our tour included lunch at the palace. This was also excellent and I would recommend visiting and making sure you take both the tour and the lunch.

If you have visited Versailles Rundales feels like an economy version of it. The garden is nice and there are a lot of different roses. Visiting this place is very relaxing.

We had the pleasure to walk around the palace surrounding grounds as we arrived 15 minutes before closing. Despite that, it was a well worth trip from Riga. Suggest you combine your tour with a visit to the Hill of Crosses, in Lithuania and make this an afternoon trip from Riga (from 1400 to 2000).

Attentive staff, helpful for people who have difficulty to walk (like my granny). Beautiful premises, nice garden park. We had a long tour which included duke and dutchess private rooms, and it was very interesting to see how royals used to live few centuries ago.

The most amazing part is the garden - beauty is everywhere. You can actually feel love of the gardeners. We took a driving trip on a cart provided locally, enjoyed it greatly. Our guide was enthusiastic, positive and very caring. End of June and later when roses are blooming ;))
