From July 10th until July 13th, the Palais grand-ducal opened its doors to local students from Cycle 4 of the educational system. This is the seventh consecutive year the palace has welcomed students (see here for last year), in collaboration with the Luxembourg City Tourist Office (LCTO). Students learned about the history of the Palais grand-ducal, in addition to how the Grand Ducal family lives and works. The tour also included information about the art and decor within the palace.

The students tours totaled more than 800 young people from 28 different schools. The visitors were first welcomed by a palace staff member and then guided on the tour by a guide from LCTO. The students also got a sneak peek of the upcoming exhibit "1817-2017 : Bicentenaire de la naissance du Grand-Duc Adolphe¦ un «luxembourgeois» de cœur et d’âme" ("1817- 2017: Bicentenary of the birth of Grand Duke Adolphe, a 'Luxembourgeois' with heart and soul"), which will be opened to the public at the annual Palais grand-ducal opening that starts July 15th and runs through September 3rd.
