We did the walking tour that took us past the palace, being December there was no entry allowed, so we enjoyed it from the outside. Nice to see, admittedly it isn't quite as an ornate structure as many others you'll see in Europe. But still...More

Quite dull as palaces go. Doesn't really match up to the other palaces of Europe in say London or Madrid

This is not that impressive compared with other European Palaces, perhaps more understated, but worth a visit.

You are allowed to enter but unfortunately I went at the time when they were having some kind of event so I could not go through.

It's another 20mins from the famous shopping mall but it's a delightful palace with a beutful garden infront. The garden is okish... nothing special during winter but I can imagine how amazing it must be during the summer time with flowers.

I wouldn't say there's a whole lot here, but it's worth walking by and taking a look on the way to something else. Another very grand palace in the city.

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.
