Very nice, gorgeous architecture. A must see in the heart of the city where the Prince comes. Good bars and restaurants in this area. Nice to relax amidst the beautiful building!

Quite a grand building with beautiful architecture. You can visit inside and even view the changing of the guards or just sit in a cafe and admire the structure from outside.

Just a nice architecture building. I could not see the guards though the guard house was empty. Only when the flag is up the Prince is there

Quite grand building with the architecture typical to Luxembourg. You can visit inside and even view the changing of the guards. We preferred to admire the building from the chocolate and cake shop outside!

Quite impressive but not too much - there were many visitors around the Palais - expected to see more guards...

If you have to see one thing in Luxembourg City you have to see the Grand Duces Palace. It s situated in the middle of the City and just next to the Casemates. Enjoy ;-)
