Royal Palace Amsterdam was once a city hall and royal palace; today it's used by the Dutch monarch for hosting official events. Built during the Dutch Golden Age in 1665, the site features prominent paintings and sculptures created by distinguished artists of the era, as well as lavish Empire furniture from the early 19th century. Take an audio tour and hear about the history of the palace. Walk through the extravagant rooms and offices, filled with golden elements and brightly colored, highly realistic paintings. You'll encounter works by Flinck, Lievens, and Jordaens. Plan my day in Amsterdam using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • We came with two kids(age 7/12) and three adults. The palace is absolutely impressive and beautiful. We loved the little audio tour guides that came in many languages. We spent almost 3 hours going from room to room and learning so much about the royals and the great history. We absolutely recommend to visit the palace when your in Amsterdam!
  • Simply gorgeous. And above all, it is well run and efficient. Free audio tours with amazing detail and the option for a short or long tour depending on your schedule. A proper treat, and not simply focusing on the royal history, but the full history of the building.
