Do you know if Luxembourg royal family have any palaces etc in Czech Republic or it was everything confiscated in 1945? I'm not sure if they gain something in restitution...maybe not but I don't know, do you??

To my knowledge, the current Grand Ducal house of Luxembourg is actually from the House of Nassau, and is no relation to the Dukes of Luxembourg who were Kings of Bohemia in the 13th and 14th centuries. I don't think there are any ties to the current Grand Dukes and the Czech Republic. Please, someone tell me if I am incorrect in this assumption

They had Castles in Germany. Until 1934 they owned the Castles of Biebrich and Weilburg. In the Vault of Weilburg Castle are the Grand Duke Adolphe, Grand Duchess Adehleid Marie and Grand Duke Guillaume IV. buried. Every year on 17.11. Adolphe's death anniversary the Vault is opened. The Vault is luxemburgian Territoriy and not german. This 2 Castles where sold to the Country of Prusssia by Grand Duchess Charlotte in 1944. The Family also owned Hohenburg Castle in Bavaria which Duke Adolphe bought after he lost Nassau. He and also later his daughter-in-law Grand Duchess Marie Anne spend there a lot of time. it was sold in the 1950's.

I'm not sure if this was posted yet, but it's a great video of the palace.

Wonderful video, thanks! Princess Grace too made a documentary showing off the Monaco palace but I've never see it.

Luxemburger Wort - The turbulent history of Luxembourg's palace

"Today we know it as the Grand Ducal Palace, but did you know when the building was first constructed around 1418, it was actually Luxembourg's town hall?"

The Grand Ducal Palace will now have at least 2 guards outside and weapons will be held in front instead of hung over the shoulder.

When there's an official visit or the Grand Duke is at the palace, there will be 4 guards outside.

Who lives in the Castle of Berg beyond the Grand Dukes and the children? Do any of the Grand Duke Henri's brothers live in Berg's Castle?
