Royal PalaceThe magnificent Koninklijk Paleis was originally built as a town hall in the mid-17th century by Jacob van Campen and then converted into a palace by Napoleon Bonaparte's younger brother, who became king of The Netherlands in 1808.

This aesthetically severe-looking building features one of the finest ceremonial halls in Europe. The Burgerzal (Burghers' Hall) was the illustrious venue for the ball which was held to celebrate the marriage of Princess Beatrix to Klaus von Amberg in 1966. No longer used as a palace, the Royal Palace still caters for official royal functions, gala dinners, exhibitions and state visits.

Open: Easter and June to October, daily - 11:00 to 17:00
November to December and February to May, Tuesday to Thursday - 12:30 to 17:00
(Depending on official functions - check times before going)
