Palace of the Grand Dukes (Palais Grand-Ducal) features one of the most impressive facades in the city. Built as a city hall during the Flemish Renaissance, the palace suffered greatly during World War II--the Nazis destroyed much of the original furniture and decor and used the building as a tavern. Today, the grand interior is open for tours, but only during the summer. Check the website for dates and times.

  • Luxembourg is a MUST-STOP on any European visit. Luxembourg is a beautiful country, although modern, it is still proud of its heritage. The Palais Guards did their guard-duties even though it was wet and cold. So enjoyed seeing how they performed their duties regardless the weather.
  • First time I was here, I had great memories of the city. I revisited the country recently and I had to stop by the palace and it was indeed a place to see if you are in the city. Some military exercises could be observed here including the change of guards which is not as flamboyant as the other palaces but not that bad. Must add to your list if you plan to visit Luxembourg.
