Noordeinde Palace (Paleis Noordeinde) Tours

Noordeinde Palace (Paleis Noordeinde)
Transformed from a farmhouse into a stately home in 1533, Noordeinde Palace (Paleis Noordeinde) in The Hague was presented to William of Orange’s widow in recognition of her husband’s service to the Netherlands. Noordeinde Palace is one of four palaces across the country owned by the Dutch royal family and serves as the office of King Willem-Alexander.
 
The Basics
Jacob van Campen, the 17th-century Dutch architect who built the Royal Palace (Koninklijk Paleis) in Amsterdam, had a hand in developing Noordeinde Palace’s Renaissance style. He created the H-shaped building seen today, along with many of the building’s serene, classical attributes, such as the equestrian statue in the courtyard, a tribute to William of Orange. The palace itself is closed to the public, but the gardens are open and free for those who want to explore.
 
Things to Know Before you Go
  • Noordeinde Palace is a must-visit for architecture and history fans.
  • Bring an umbrella or sun protection depending on when you visit.
  • The gardens around the palace are wheelchair-accessible.
  • The palace gardens are free for all to visit.

When to Get There
While the palace itself is off limits, the gardens are open to the public and can be explored independently or as part of a tour. They’re open from sunrise to sunset and generally aren’t too crowded; just bring an umbrella if you’re visiting outside of the summertime as rain is common in The Hague.

How to Get There
The palace is located right in the heart of The Hague, about a 20-minute walk from The Hague Central Station. The nearest tram stop (for line number 1) is at Kneuterdijk, about two blocks away; bus numbers 22, 24, and 28 also stop here.

King Willem-Alexander 
The palace holds the offices of the current monarch of the Netherlands, William-Alexander, the son of Princess Beatrix (whom he succeeded after her abdication in 2013). His main roles involve meeting with government officials, signing documents, and acting as a figurehead at various functions. However, as the Netherlands is a democracy, his role is largely ceremonial. 
Address: Noordeinde 68, The Hague, South Holland 2514, Netherlands

Historical Royal Walking Tour in The Hague

Historical Royal Walking Tour in The Hague

star-4.5
I am going to take u back in time, where The Hague was founded. What is the history of the Netherlands, and what role did The Hague have in the history. How did the Dutch royal family came to power and what role do they play in current Holland. These and other stories will be told during the walking tour. The Hague is beautifull and rich in history. A lot of the landmarks are still here. With a guided walking tour u not only know the story behind the buildings but also what the function is today. History of The Hague is Dutch history and I would love to tell u all about it. We walk with small or private groups to have some interaction and flexibilty in the tour. I like to adjust the tour according to the group. I also arrange water and some snacks to have a great morning or afternoon.
