Royal Palace Amsterdam, Amsterdam

4.2
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.

  • Major landmark in Amsterdam. Never miss this place if you are in Amsterdam and this is great gathering and happening place. You just get down anywhere around and a day out if guaranteed.  more »
  • The former Town Hall transformed into a long time in the Royal Palace, equipped and furnished as if before the moment of family królewka left the room, and maybe it is. English audio guide very useful, wyczerująco talks about passing places. Just a pity that there is no such Polish language.

  • If you love architecture and interior this museum will not disappoint you. Also historical story of this building make it extra interesting. Events that took place and people who lived in this location. Also u will get a free audio tour with no extra charge
  • Glad we saw this. Please be aware the building is basically all on 1 floor. It consists of 1 large banqueting hall and about a dozen lounges, libraries and bedrooms around the outer edge of the building. The audio guide is informative if a little dry.
  • Beautiful place to visit if you're a tourist. I've been to Amsterdam and it's beautiful at night. People there speak english and they are very kind.
  • An iconic landmark in Amsterdam. We were only able to admire it from the outside . The facade is not as impressive as other palaces in Europe but as part of the whole setting in Dam Square, it's pretty magnificent. The square is full of pigeons munching on treats from tourists; also lots of horse-drawn carriages doing tours around the area. I can imagine this place being a very popular meetup point.
  • Lots of hustling people in the afternoon and evening, but early in the morning you'll have the whole plaza to yourself. It's an old building. It's just what you'd expect. A grand palace overlooking a plaza with some other cool buildings and statues.
