Grand Ducal Palace

It is almost time for the annual opening of the Grand-Ducal Palace. On 16 July the palace will open for 6 weeks. This is the only time during the year that the palace is open to the public. Tours are available in several languages. Admission is a bargain at 7 Euro for adults and 3.50 for children. Despite the relative short period that the palace is open it remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in Luxembourg City.

If you happen to be in or around the Luxembourg area this summer I heartily recommend that you take advantage of these 6 short weeks to tour the palace. It is a beautiful palace and the tour is wonderful treat for anyone interested in The Family, Luxembourg or architecture. The palace was throughly restored in the mid-90s and is lovely.

All proceeds from admission benefit the Grand-Ducal Couple's foundation.
