  • It is a guard change ceremony held every day from 11:55 at the Grand Duke's Palace. It's small compared to Buckingham Palace. It is a popular attraction from tourists, so it is better to arrive 30 minutes in advance.

  • At noon every day you can watch the classic changing of the guard at the royal palace with their classic white uniform that lasts about twenty minutes. Very nice to see.
