  • The palace is only open for a few months in the summer. It is expensive the entrance and you have to book in time. The palace is small but very nice, the guide explains the history of Luxembourg and the dukes. The guided tour is not available in Spanish, we did it in English.

  • Not as grand as palaces in other countries, but still very interesting to see, at least from the outside. The architecture is nice and it's pretty easy to reach from the main road. You can probably spend at most 10 minutes looking at it from the outside, but that's fine because there's other stuff to see nearby.
  • It was amazing to see the Grand Ducal Palace. There was lots of history and descriptions of the people in the paintings on the wall. You go through security and then need to leave backpacks at the entrance but they are well organized and guarded. You are not permitted to take any photos or to touch anything. Strollers are not allowed and young children must be carried.
