It's a big old building. The columns make it look nice. It looks over a park across the street. There are nice gardens all around the building. I was here on business and didn't... read more

Good to see and it is very grand. Nothing 'spectacular' about it but it is worth a look. Loads of traffic though as there is a major road in front of it.

It's a big old building. The columns make it look nice. It looks over a park across the street. There are nice gardens all around the building. I was here on business and didn't have a lot of time to spend but it was worth seeing. Overall pretty nice.

We were walking by the palace and on a whim, went in for a tour. It was simply beautiful and there was enough elegant rooms to impress, but not overwhelm. This is a great site to get a good dose of historic sight-seeing in less than 90 minutes!

Really nice place, and interesting history! But the traffic on it makes it a bit loud and not comfortable... I was lucky to be able to hear the street musicians playing between cars and busses.

Okay the place is free, okay it is a royal residence. All the place that opens to the public is a royal chapel, and the bar to the altar where the cross is was open, so I walked a few stairs and wanted to have a good look. Just as I stepped onto the altar, there is an old woman... More

Only less than 1/8 of the palace is open to the public when the king is away, but still it is amazing that he does that to the tourists (don't know if any other royal family do that.. ) I was awed by the feeling of visiting a palace where the current monach is living. Anyway, it was a little... More
