Grand Ducal Palace

Take a tour of the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg or simply view its breathtaking Flemish-Renaissance façade from the street.

The Grand Ducal Palace, or Groussherzogleche Palais, is a stately 16th-century manor in the heart of Luxembourg City’s historic quarter. Admire the stunning architecture and ornate stonework from the street and watch the changing of the guard. Tour the beautifully furnished halls and rooms of the residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg during the summer months to admire the period interiors and splendid furnishings.

As you walk through the historic city center, look for the elegant honey-colored stone façade of this palace. Stand back on the wide pedestrianized street and note its stunning symmetrical design. The building is flanked by towers and sharply pointed turrets and has many windows and ornate balconies latticing the façade. Watch for the changing of the Grand Ducal Guard and see soldiers from Luxembourg’s military forces changing places in the sentry boxes.

Join a guided tour and explore the palace’s decadent interior. The building began as a city hall between 1572 and 1795 before becoming the seat of the Luxembourg government in 1817. Much of the palace’s interior was damaged during German occupation in World War II, but was restored under the supervision of the Grand Duchess Charlotte in the second half of the 20th century.

Today, the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess use the palace as a residence and location for official duties. Look in on the ducal offices and admire the stunning lighting designs by Ingo Maurer. If you visit during the Christmas season, you might recognize the Grand Duke’s Yellow Room, from which he broadcasts his annual Christmas message.

The Grand Ducal Palace is located in Luxembourg City’s historic center. Tours are available daily during the summer months, except Wednesdays. Tours last about 45 minutes. Be sure to visit the Grand Ducal Palace during your walking tour through the historic sights of Luxembourg City. Nearby, find the Place Guillaume II, Luxembourg City Hall and the National Museum of History and Art.
