Small state and small head of state residence. But definitely worth seeing. One can almost see himself sitting behind the big windows looking down on ones kingdom. It is welcoming but it does not offer much things to do...

Absolutely stunning building. The architecture is very impressive and the history of the building is also very interesting.

This, quite impressive, building is located at the city center. It is mostly closed for the public, and like the Brits, they have a guard posted outside it. The Luxembourgish Grand Duke however is actually rarely here, so your chances of seeing some royalty are pretty much zero. Still worth to take a couple of nice pictures

If your thinking of a mini break that's dripped in history,beauty and panoramic views, then Luxembourg is the place for you.It has a calming effect that's contagious. It offers the sophistication of Italy for shopping with an added quaintness of boutiques. One of my favorite places for a fab get away.

The building is ok. Not much to see. It is close to the center, so, easy to find and close to your way. Otherwise it is not worth visiting.

We were on a guided tour of Luxemburg, and part of the tour was the Palace of the Grand Dukes. A very notable building it is too, it also has an ARMED army guard parading/marching up and down in front of the Palace (very smart as well). The guide informed us that the Grand Duke actually doesn't live there any... More

Nothing special. You just see the same things as in the photographs. There is a restaurant opposite to the palace, which is a must try.

Is not every day open for public,so if you are lucky,go to see it!You have seen maybe other palaces much bigger and more beautiful but this is like Luxembourg: small and charming!Is a part of history still alive,sometimes Grand Duke is here!Can't take pictures,so be open eyes ..

Historic, charming open court encircled by historically charming structures. The architecture alone is worth the visit, which we have many times.
