  • Very cool place to learn about Dutch history and politics. The English audio was very good and helpful  more »
  • Binnenhof is a good place you must check on den hauge After that you can eat lunch on the resturant in front of this place  more »
  • Parliament and say random gorgeous country, but feel the history though small, less decoration had the good keeping from building (in the Grand Slams). I saw Paul moving when no car is waiting at the Mauritshuis, enters the car was interesting.
