There are several palaces in The Hague and ‘Paleis Noordeinde’ (Noordeinde Palace) is one of them. It has been a palace of the Royal House since 1609 when the state presented it to William of Orange’s widow as a gift. Today, the Dutch monarch uses it as a working palace.
Noordeinde Palace and Art
Paleis Noordeinde is located in the center of The Hague along the street Noordeinde. You can take pictures from the street, but the palace itself is not open to the public. You can combine a visit with a walk through the street, which is well-known for having the highest ‘density of art’ in the whole of Holland.
Palace Garden and Royal Stables
On the other side of Paleis Noordeinde you can enjoy some peace and quiet in the Palace Garden. It’s a small park and admission is free. Just next to the park you’ll see the Royal Stables where the horses and coaches of the Royal House are kept.
