The Royal Palace
Royal Palace Amsterdam is one of the three palaces that is still used by the Royal Family. The exhibitions and interior design are well worth your time.
The Royal Palace is located on the ‘Dam’ (Dam Square) in Amsterdam. It is one of the three palaces still used by the Royal Family.
The Royal Palace in Amsterdam isn’t King Willem-Alexander's place of residence, but he occasionally receives important guests here.
History of the Royal Palace
The 350 year old Palace started as the City Hall of Amsterdam. In 1808 King Louis Napoleon Bonaparte transformed it into a Palace, which it has remained ever since. However, when you enter the Palace you can still see the building’s original function.
The Royal Palace is open to public most of the time. Visitors can admire the marble floors, magnificent paintings, delicate sculptures, gigantic chandeliers, plus an annual exhibition.
Royal Palace Museum
The exhibitions and interior at the Royal Palace are definitely worth a visit. You can take your own time looking around or book a one-hour tour. The guided tours make your visit more interesting and informative but you will have to contact the organisation to make reservations two weeks in advance.
