The royal palace looks much better after the last renovation. The free audio guide in different languages are very helpful. It’s great to know the detailed stories about the building, the paintings and sculptures in the building. The only thing missing is the visiting direction sign!
A continually used building that is/was used as a Royal Palace, a city hall, a reception area, etc. Continuous use = relevance = longevity so good on the Dutch for doing that. Another example where a seat of government is the centre of the main town square instead of a church. They tried to clean the facade but eventually gave up as it grew black again due to pollution. Interesting that there's pollution in Amsterdam when the main mode of transportation is the bike. Look closely at the centre though and you'll notice unicorns with their gold horns sticking out just beneath the bell tower - neat.
A beautiful palace with a lot of history intricately connected to changes in politics in Amsterdam. A sight to behold just walking around, you can also borrow an audio guide. The audio guide can get quite heavy with information, so be prepared to spend a lot of time listening if you want to hear everything.
Beautiful! Ornately decorated rooms, a magnificent palace. Doesn't take too long to cover the entire first floor. The audio guide is informative. But just spend some time in each room, and take it all in.
Such a lovely palace! The “map of the globe” was fascinating! I did not use the audio guide. Preferred to explore on my own. There are a LOT of people so think about going earlier in the day. We went during peak hours. The gift shop is really nothing to get excited about. It would have been nice to learn more about the reigning King & Queen of The Netherlands 🇳🇱A very special piece of Dutch History & most certainly worth a visit..
