Peace Palace, The Hague

(900+ reviews on the web)
Government Building
Often a host to policy talks, legal seminars, and other events, Peace Palace serves as the permanent home to the United Nations' International Court of Justice. The ornate building, topped by a tower, represents the culmination of international efforts at the turn of the 20th century to create an international forum to avoid war and conflict. Stop by the visitor center for information about the court and its daily workings or to learn more about the building and grounds themselves. Though not open to the public, you can access the institution by taking a guided tour and exploring the intricately decorated interior, replete with busts of famous figures, domed ceilings, and vaulted hallways. Be sure to check the website to see available tour times. Plan to see Peace Palace and other attractions that appeal to you using our The Hague family vacation planner.

  • Randomly came by train to the Hague. The train from the Station Amsterdam Centraal Haag Centraal Station (1:00). The cost of the ticket there and back about 25 euros. The Palace got a pleasant walk on foot. Local residents helped to get to it. This building can be seen from afar. Place attracted me. Recommend. Also bought a "letters to a French soldier (1914-1918). Published in many languages, including English. And wooden gifts-pendants in the form of a bird of peace-dove. Paid for the card. On the cheque is printed the Palace itself to the name of the "Palace of Peace".

  • Scheveningen forest park entrance. It is build like a castle so eye-catching building. Would be historic buildings, but the new building was completed in 1913 by United States Steel King Carnegie donation in. Inside the library, so you can see.

  • 太平王院大明 Peace palace is beautiful Les Palais des Paix tres bellesime дворец мира очи красива Palacio de Paz muy bonito قسر البيلد جميا
  • Beautiful, to see, but the visitor information materials make it seem like you can do more than walk to the gate and take a photo (yes, there's a visitor centre there, but it's not that interesting).
  • I highly recommend the tours. The garden and building are beautiful. Unfortunately, no photography is allowed inside, so check your expectations.
  • Very nice looking building. Did not go inside, but worth the walk to see it.
  • The garden is extraordinary. The library is brilliant.
