Binnenhof And knightshall, The Hague

4.7
Visit the historic and current center of Dutch political life at Binnenhof And knightshall. The 13th-century Gothic castle was originally the seat of the counts of Holland, and it later served as the main government building of the Dutch Republic. Today, the castle is home to the upper and lower houses of the parliament, as well as the prime minister's office. The central building of the castle represents the magnificent grand hall, with a throne from which the Dutch monarch delivers the parliament's opening speech. Go on a guided tour of the castle, learn about its history, admire the architecture, and use the opportunity to watch the parliament in session. Occasionally parts of the building may be inaccessible due to important political activities. A visit to Binnenhof And knightshall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our The Hague online route planner to plot your vacation.

  • Really that worth visiting it. It is a very beautiful and full of history. You can visit the tweede kamer Parliament which is equivalent to the Spanish Congress. You can also visit the maurits huis aside.

  • Nice to see where the Government resides, too bad we don't have seen famous people but if you're lucky to get that. There was even an ice cream float.
