Buy a ticket and raise money for a good cause

The net profit from ticket sales will go to the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess Foundation. The foundation offers assistance to people with specific needs to help them integrate into Luxembourg society, and it also supports a number of projects in developing countries.

Guided tours take place every weekday from 9am to 5pm. They are available in several languages: Luxembourgish, English, German, French and Dutch.
Entry costs €12 for adults and €6 for children aged 4 to 12.

Tickets can only be bought at the Luxembourg City Tourist Office on Place Guillaume II.

The role of the palace

Since 1890, the Grand Ducal Palace has been the official residence for the country's monarch to carry out his or her duties, as well as the workplace of the grand ducal couple and their heirs apparent. 
Although the palace has a 16th-century Renaissance-style façade, the interior and state rooms are striking for their bright, modern character.

A temporary exhibition to mark the two-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Grand Duke Adolphe (1817-1905), entitled "A Luxembourger in heart and soul", is being held in the palace this year.
