This past week, from July 6th to July 10th, the Palais Grand-Ducal was opened up to Cycle 4 students from Luxembourg's education system. This is the fifth year students have been welcomed to the palace, as part of a joint program between the Cour and the Luxembourg City Tourist Office (LCTO).
Staff members of the Cour greeted students and assisted in providing them with a tour that gave students a glimpse of the active workings of monarchy, both current and historical, within Luxembourg. Nearly 370 students from 18 different schools toured the Palais Grand-Ducal during the week. They also got an early look at the exhibition "Wëlcom dôhém ! Retour d’exil de S.A.R. la Grande-Duchesse Charlotte", which will be open to visitors from July 13th to September 6th of this year.
