There is not much to do - but a lot to see. Enjoy the architecture of the palace, and watch the changing of the guards.

Guards patrol the outside. Beautiful building and immaculate stonework. Worth a photo or two! Funny location for a palace!

I only saw this from the outside but most impressive - you can book a tour to visit inside when the Grand Duke isn't around. I enjoyed a hot chocolate opposite whilst watching the soldiers marching up and down.

Not much to say really. Walked past it, wouldn't know what it was unless on a tour or was purposely looking for it.

Don't have much to say. The building was very pretty and it was cool to see the guards change and March alongside the building.

Right opposite the palace guards look at the top of the light poles and find the faces hidden there. Worth watching the guards march as well along the front of the palace.

It is the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and where he performs most of his duties as Head of State of the Grand Duchy.
