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.

Outside of this palace there are a lot of tourists but actually it is not a very interesting building. Anyway, outside there is some guard doing the classical promenade outside the palace and it is maybe this that attract the tourists.

It is huge and beautiful. In fact it seems that the hole street and all it blocks belongs to the Duque.

Palace of the Grand Dukes is a nice structure but of a much smaller scale when compared with other palaces. There are two guards at the kiosks outside the building. Nearly all the tourists take photos on these guards while visiting this spot.

As it is than already May and the tourist seasons started, I am sure it will be open for the routine visits. It is a small palace, but it looks great! Enjoy this small but beautiful capital city and don't forget the posh... More
