“Not that grand.... but it is beautiful”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

When I heard PALACE, I do expect something grand and massive.
However the one in Luxembourg is not like that.
It is relatively small but it has beautiful ornaments outside.

“Worth going inside during summer months...”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Whilst the Duke and the family are summering in Colmar-Berg you can get a sneak peek of the palace and it's well worth the tour. Very knowledgeable guide shares the family story, history of the building and of Luxembourg in a light hearted and interesting way. There are no pictures allowed and although a little disappointing means everyone is focused on the rooms and the palace itself.

As noted by others this is a pomp free, open to everyone trip and well worth it. Grab a nice lunch before or after and make it a bit of culture in the day. EUR 7 for adults and 3.50 for kids, it's not expensive, lasts about 45 minutes and lets you imagine what it feels like to be at the centre of European royalty for the day. French, German, English, Dutch and Luxembourgish language tours available.

“Different”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Easy to find, a lovely blond sandstone building, no pomp and ceremony on display just a single guard on duty outside. Fun photo ops :)

“Buy tickets at the tourist info!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

You must buy tickets at the TI in the square behind Plac D'Armes. The tours go every hour/half hour in specific languages. It is beautifully ornate inside. Our guide was very knowledgable, and he was proud to be a Luxembourger. Enjoy some history and lovely decor. No pictures are allowed inside.
