I havent been inside, only outside the castle, on a nice winter walk. Its a beautiful place like the castles in Petersburg, I havent expected this kind of castles in Latvia. Definitely worth a day trip from Riga.

We visited the Palace three weeks ago:it was a wonderful opportunity with a small group of visitors. We could see every thing with peace, Lithuanian Tours made us a price of 4.80€ for a single entry. We had a good and nice lunch in the kitchen of the Palace too.

The private money invested in restoring this palace was given unstintingly. The fabric to cover the walls costing more than half a million for the several rooms on display. The furniture is mostly replicas, although some of the paintings have been reounded up and restored. The gardens are extensive and even in September were gorgeous. This would be a fantastic... More

We were taken to this palace by a local and thoroughly enjoyed the palace and the grounds, very well kept. It is probably not as grand as Versailles & Nymphenburg Palaces but still had a lot of character. A little way out of Riga but worth the visit.

Plan on spending two to three hours touring both inside the palace and outside in he gardens. It was very busy on the day we visited, but well worth it anyway, Cameras are permitted for a fee. If you are going to be in Latvia, this should be on your list.

Rundale is 75 minutes away from Riga by bus. The palace and the park are really amazing, still under reconsturction but worth to visit. For the palace 2 hours maximum is enough, and 1 hour to the park. The palace has nice interior, my problems was only that there were no infos (or really short) about the rooms, what is... More

The tour of the building requires a fee, the grounds do not. The fee is worth it, since a lot of the old building and building history are displayed. This also allows entrance to the distillary and other exhibits. The grounds are also impressive and the restaurant serves great meals.
