The estate at Colmar-Berg first came into the possession of the Grand Dukes of Luxembourg in 1845. The Belgian Revolution had divided Luxembourg from the Netherlands, and also into two, undermining Dutch control of the fortress of Luxembourg City. Grand Duke William II sought to establish a suitable Grand Ducal residence in Luxembourg, hoping that a division of his time between The Hague and Luxembourg would placate the local, overwhelmingly Roman Catholic, population. To this end, the Grand Duke bought Berg Castle from the Pasquier estate. In 1848, it was recognised as the exclusive home of the Grand Duke by the newly promulgated constitution.
In 1890, the Royal house of the Netherlands and the Grand Ducal house of Luxembourg diverged, and the new Grand Duke, Adolphe, purchased Berg Castle the following year, in order to maintain the Grand Ducal estate at Colmar-Berg. In 1906, William IV had the old castle demolished and a new one constructed in its place, designed by the Munich-based architect Max Ostenrieder and the local Pierre Funck-Eydt. Work on the new castle began in 1907, and was completed in 1911, after which it became the primary residence of the Grand Ducal family.

Будучи официальной резиденцией люксембургских монархов, замок в Кольмар-Берге закрыт для туристов. Но его можно осмотреть снаружи, из-за ограды. Наиболее примечательна большая белая центральная башня.... more »As the official residence of the Luxembourg monarchs, the castle in Colmar Berg is closed to tourists. But it can be seen outside, because of the fence. Most notable is the large white central tower...
Cool, but not dopozwiedzania for anyone who would want, of course I have not seen anything outside the courtyard and entrance for employees, but I must admit that it makes an impression, and people who work there (at least those whom I met) really OK 10/10.....
