A stunning pearl you have to discover! It's definitely worth the trip. From Riga it takes about 1,5 hour. The palace has been restored beautifully. Each room has it's unique colour, furniture and atmosphere. You can take the short or long tour. The short tour only covers 1 wing, the long tour takes you through the entire palace. The garden...

An impressive looking palace which has been well restored and nicely furnished. The gardens looked very neat and we'll maintained. The walk from the carpark was very muddy.

A great day out. The castle itself is grand and well maintained. The gardens are spectacular too. Well worth a visit. Only thing to note is the route from Riga to the Castle, if you take the shorter route is via a lot of section of gravel road.

I would suggest to visit the garden at different times. We have visited it on the first day of May, ticket costed 1,5euro per adult and also 2 euros for taking photos (but we got the sticker for photographing from the friendly tourist who was leaving the garden).There were lots of tulips and daffodils blooming but some works were still...

We visited Rundale Palace and took the short route without touring the apartments (3.56 euros per person). The long routes costs slightly more and you get to view the apartments. There is also a camera fee of 1.42 euros if you want to take pictures inside. For a palace, I would say the inside is pretty average - nothing spectacular... More

You can see how importand people leaved in those times. Where they used to entertain, eat, sleep, read books, play pool – everything. Many interesting room – each unique and saturated with details. Garden is a separate story – nothing was blooming at the time we were there, but still very nice place. Also there is a nice excebition undegraund... More

Lavishly decorated and a beautifully maintained snapshot of 19th century Latvia (although quite obviously the incredibly wealthy and aristocratic parts of 19th century Latvia). The architecture of the different buildings is breathtaking and the gardens are pretty much worth a visit on their own, and help tie together the overall image of opulence that Rundales Pils gives you. Can get... More

While visiting Rundale's palace you will forget that it's 21st century and will catch yourself thinking of how it was to be around when the palace was just built and it was filled with royalty swinging in and out on a daily basis. The palace is fully renovated and it just looks stunning, not to mention the gardens. I wish... More

If you are fond of 19th century nobility life, then that is the place to go! The palace rooms were renovated and furnished according to these times. In each room there is a description of each object that is located there (in English as well). The garden is amazing! Very beautiful place that allows you to travel through time (at... More
