The palace is only open to visitors from late July to early September while the royal family is away. It opens at 10:30 and last entry was at 3:00. A line formed around 10. It's free to enter. I highly recommend spending 1 Euro on...More

Well worth a visit, strolling around the grand rooms and exhibition, take some pictures outside and visit the gift shop

This is only open to the public for ~1.5 months each year. We are very glad we visited. The rooms start out somewhat unimpressive but get more opulent the further you go. We were also very impressed by the special exhibits. These highlighted various items...More

The Palais Royal is possible one of the grandest buildings i've ever been to. The Chandeliers are incomprehensibly large, the grandeur off the scale. A must visit and free too.

If you have the time, it is worth a walk to see the Royal palace. It is beautiful and the grounds are well maintained. We only viewed it from the outside, I'm actually not sure if you can go in....
