Welcome to the Royal Palace...


Plenty of room. Any time of year you can find it here.


The Royal Palace in Amsterdam is one of three palaces in the Netherlands which is at the disposal of Queen Beatrix by Act of Parliament. The palace was built as city hall during the dutch golden age in the seventeenth century. The building became the royal palace of King Louis Napoleon and later of the Dutch Royal House. It is situated in the west side of Dam Square in the centre of Amsterdam, opposite the War Memorial and next to the Nieuwe Kerk.

The palace was renovated from 2005 until June 2009. Since 14 June 2009, the Palace is open again to visitors. (Wikipedia)
