Royal Palace Amsterdam, Amsterdam

4.1
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.

    Very beautiful Palace. From the beginning, the chandeliers of the Hall of the people give the quality of this place. Each piece is of great beauty, curtains, carpets, tapestries, mainly in shades of red, and to complete the décor, furniture style Empire, desired by Louis-Bonaparte, this furniture is absolutely GORGEOUS. This Palace is worth a visit.

    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.

    I am just visited outside of the palace. Look simple from outside. I can see people visit inside also.
