Grijzestad Palace is the old Royal Palace in the Old Town of Grijzestad, built in 1506. It served as the main residence from 1506-1784, and is currently a summer retreat. Most of it is opened up as a museum. It is a National Monument since 1907.

From 1621 to 1626, King Adrian I had the palace remodeled and expanded.

Adrian II, who was deposed in favor of his son Ambroos, was buried in the chapel of the Grijzestad Palace in 1807. His body was never reburied in the Royal Mausoleum of the Realpaleis in Koningstad.
