Create an itinerary including Royal Palace Amsterdam
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.

  • Lovely on the inside, very classical with many historical and valuable exhibits. Multiple audio guide channels with detailed explanations of paintings. If the front facade was cleaned it would look spectacular. At the moment you would never guess what gems are inside.
  • Amazing experience. Don't be sorry to pay a little more expensive ticket, but it's worth of every cent believe me! You can also take a guide if you want complete experience and history speech on English language of course. It will take some time to see all. Enjoy!
