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.

This is a pretty building and considering there is not much in Luxembourg to see, this is a must for any tourist. People often ask what there is to do in Luxembourg and I say, Place D’arms, the Grund, and the Grand Dukes palace. If...More

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.

Found it round a back street , doesn't compare very well to other Royal residences . Only 2 guards outside

A beautiful building located in a small square. In my opinion, the house is a bit confined, so that you can not get a proper impression.

The building is beautiful. It’s just around the corner of the cathedral. Cozy space that allows you to have a sip of hot chocolate while looking the at guard marching.

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
