  • In the heart of the city, so I came alone walk I look. Only cut once shutters building, extra photos because it was a large building, but no particular features. Became a place not seen the change of guards, but left the impression very much.

  • There are soldiers here who perform their stylised parading outside. It interesting to note the different periods of construction which is reflected in the architecture.

  • Lovely exterior. Guard out front during the day, but gone at night.
  • Beautiful Palace, that is very nicely decorated but not too extravagant. You can watch a soldier marching back and forth.
  • Amazinh and looks stunning. I enjoyed but unfortunatelly lost all my pics from the place.
  • Worth a few minutes to watch the armed palace guards do their best imitation of the Marines at the National Cemetery in Washington. Better yet, stop by the city tourist office and request a tour of the palace interior, which is actually pretty interesting and appropriately short. "World Famous" chocolate shop is directly across from the palace doors. There you can have a 12 euro hot chocolate.
  • Cute little palace for a cute little country. Worth stopping by outside if you are in Lux. And let's be honest: how many Grand Duchy Palaces can you visit in the world? The other famous one is in Venice (Palazzo Duccale) and it is not "Grand". At any rate, check out the lamps with faces that turn their heads as you walk if you happen to be around the Palace at night. They are just in front of the entrance.
