Peace Palace, The Hague
Categories: Government Buildings, Tourist Spots
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.

Great place to visit and I learnt a lot of the history by paying the visit! Staffs are friendly there.
I highly recommend the tours. The garden and building are beautiful. Unfortunately, no photography is allowed inside, so check your expectations.
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).
