Paleis Noordeinde, Den Haag, Netherlands - 1604

Noordeinde Palace (Dutch: Paleis Noordeinde) is one of the three official palaces of the Dutch royal family. Located in The Hague in the province of South Holland, it has been used as the "working palace" for King Willem-Alexander since 2013.

The palace originated as a medieval farmhouse, which was converted into a spacious residence by the steward of the States of Holland, Willem van de Goudt in 1533. The original farmhouse's cellars can still be seen in the palace basement.


In the foreground you can see the equestrian statue of William of Orange in The Hague from 1845 and is a 19th-century memorial in memory of William of Orange.

It is the oldest statue in the public space of the royal town and enjoys protection as a national monument.
