Welcome to Grand Ducal Palace

Grand Ducal Palace

The city residence of the Grand Ducal family is right in the heart of the old town, and is surprisingly unpretentious, recognisable more by the fact that there are sentry boxes outside. The building features ochre yellow stone decorated with spires and railings, overlooking a paved pedestrian square. It was originally the site of a medieval town hall that was destroyed by a gunpowder explosion in 1554, and rebuilt 20 years later. An annex to the building was built in 1859 and is the seat of the Chamber of Deputies. Guided tours are available in July and August by arrangement with the Luxembourg City Tourist Office.
