  • The Royal Palace is a very worthwhile tour in Amsterdam, with numerous beautiful rooms throughout. Include this in your sightseeing in the Dam Square area of the city.  more »
  • Beautiful square and the exterior is as beautiful as the picture even better. I was there in July and it is very busy with tourists. It is definitely a place to see.  more »
  • This Palace to the very austere outside reveals a great inner wealth. Still in use for heads of State, the rooms are richly decorated. A must see! You can also access the windows of the balcony that overlooks the Dam when the Royal family waving to the crowd.

  • Beautiful place. The audioguide is very good. Unfortunately they are restoring some parts of the main hall, but overall you may enjoy the whole palace.
  • I've walked past this beautiful building more than 100 times and I'm always in awe of it sitting right at Dam Square. I have never been inside. I hear the King rarely visits the palace. The square in front is always mobbed and usually with entertainers and tourists taking many selfies.
  • Beautiful palace from outside and inside. Great architecture in centre of Amsterdam. We guided ourselfs by audio through the palace and are impressed how the dutch managed their 💦 country. Great to visit. Many beautiful architectured buildings in Amsterdam.
  • It overlooks the beautiful dam square. Absolutely to visit. Includes unique artwork.
  • I am just visited outside of the palace. Look simple from outside. I can see people visit inside also.
