How can you go to Luxembourg City and not see the Palace? Its amazing to see it in the middle of the city and experience the changing of the Guards. We were lucky enough to see an official car with one of the Royals leave the Palace. But don't miss having a hot chocolate in the shop directly across from... More

Not sure if you can go in on some days but not when we visited. It is nice to talk past. Great cafe outside you and sit and have a hot chocolate and see the view

This is the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. The head of state of the Grand Duchy does most of his work here. There are honor guards in front (very impressive) and it is a beautiful building though hard to see with good perspective since its surrounded by other buildings. I would have loved to have gone inside... More

A very nice building externally, although with the word ‘palace’ in it, a bit disappointing. And with no entry, although we obviously knew that, hardly a significant attraction.

Beautiful castle for the Duke of Luxembourg. There was a military guard in front, indicating the Duke was inside. Being in the city for the Christmas Market we had no time for a guided visit. We will come back for sure in summer time. Luxembourg city centre is beautiful maintained and very clean posh area

Pretty, even cozy, dolls' house. Perfectly situated in the center of the city of Luxembourg, it is a pretty spot, necessary in Luxembourg

Guided tours are offered during the summer while the great-ducal family is on holidays. It is the most emblematic building in the country and the guided tour helps you to better understand Luxemburgish history.

It is the official working place of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. during the day, if you have 2 soldiers, than he is in the palace, if one, he is in the country and if none, he is outside the country.
