Trip Planner: Europe / The Netherlands / North Holland Province / Amsterdam / Royal Palace Amsterdam
Royal Palace Amsterdam was once a city hall and royal palace; today it's used by the Dutch monarch for hosting official events. Built during the Dutch Golden Age in 1665, the site features prominent paintings and sculptures created by distinguished artists of the era, as well as lavish Empire furniture from the early 19th century. Take an audio tour and hear about the history of the palace. Walk through the extravagant rooms and offices, filled with golden elements and brightly colored, highly realistic paintings. You'll encounter works by Flinck, Lievens, and Jordaens. Plan my day in Amsterdam using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Will be back after COVID to tour. Sitting in Dam Square is a regal piece of architecture that anchors the square. Truly a masterpiece of Dutch architecture more »

The audio tour was fantastic alongside some amazing history, decor and architecture. Would highly recommend to anyone in the vicinity. The tour does take a few hours and if you don't have a coach load of children taking the tour at the same time, then it's a very peaceful and pleasant experience.
Number one place to visit in Amsterdam! Don’t forget to take audio guide! Interesting history and amazing architecture. So many arts and sculptures inside. Even some small basic room has huge story. You must visit Royal Palace to get a clear picture about this amazing country and city.
There is so much history there. Beautiful building where the accessories are so extravagant and well taken care of. Wish I could have seen it when the Royal family was in town. They add flowers and Royal place settings--among other opulence. 😊
Bonaparte is mentioned quite often in the audio-phone ;) The place is not very attractive from the exterior, which is a shame. The palace is beautiful inside. Every small sculpture has a huge amount of details and explanation. The projectors add something wonderful on the main hall. The history of the palace is also very interesting, I actually enjoyed to learn a lot about everything that occurred in the palace. I would give 5 star, but , the outside needs to be cleaned up a bit. It's one of the greatest place of Amsterdam after all :) (sorry, I liked more the Rijksmuseum)
Originally built ads city hall, converted into a palace, so not as grand as one would expect. Beautiful furnishings and artwork. Lighting was a little dark so it was hard to see details, and (of course) you cannot enter all of the rooms so details are difficult. But it is where state events are held and foreign dignitaries sometimes stay. Try not to bring anything because the line to check and then pick up your items is not staffed properly and you will wait
