Palace was really beautiful. Could not go in as it was closed for the season. The gardens and the exterior of the palace was really stunning.

Good expression of the decadence of the Royal Family. Paid for by the exploitation of its colonisation of The Congo.Perhaps they should open it up to the public, as royalty no longer live there.
