Guided tour in the Old Town

Visit the Royal Palace, the official residence of His Majesty The King. You might even get a glimpse of The King or Queen who use the palace as a daily place of work. In addition to the Royal Apartments, the Treasury containing the regalia is worth a visit. And make sure you don’t miss the Changing of the Guard.
