Must see when in town

The story of the palace is intriguing and the place is nicely kept. The different architecture elements are nice.

Probably the most democratic palace in the world. The facade looks like just another house in the street. Love the concept of the monarch living in the middle of his people.

The Palace is like a small but charming fairytale building. Charming like the city itself. But what is truly wonderful is the streetlight on the little square in front of the Palace. Come in the evening after dark and watch faces of light follow you around. Great fun and beautiful idea.

Easy accessable in the city-centre. Nothing special to see, as the building looks alot like the surrounding ones. Guard walks outside all the time.

If you stroll around you will just walk up to the Palace. Used for official state function now and worth seeing for aphoto

After living in Luxembourg a few years I visited the Duke's Palace and it worth it... in summer there is guided visits (very cheap or even free, I can't remember). It is nice if you are visiting the city

Inbetween other buildings there is located the palace. You can distinguish it by the two little houses for the guards and its slightly better decor but otherwise not grand. It might reflect the concept of a Luxembourgian culture. It is informative to see, just don't expect something extra special.

The Palais Grand-Ducal is so beautiful and grand. When I was there the Romanian president was visiting and I get to see the official ceremony which was so cool. I also got to talk to one of the Luxembourg’s lady official/minister and she told me in Luxembourg they like to give their citizens full access to the officials they elected.... More

Easy to find in the centre. Fun to watch the guard do his march back and forth. Unfortunately, facility was not open to the public.
