This is an amazing building, however entrance is not allowed and the visitor centre despite its merits is no substitute.

I "visited" the Peace Palace as part of a full-day tour of the Dutch Countryside, which included a visit to The Hague. I say "visited" because we basically pulled up outside, got off the bus, took some photos from the gate, got back on the bus and left. Apparently, no one is allowed inside. I found it profound to stand... More

I actually really enjoy my brief visit. My class was walking past and so we decided to head in and see what it was all about, and although you can't actually get onto the grounds (except at some times of the year; find out when on their website!) there is a nice little tourist information center with a very comprehensive...

Information and tour booking on their website.(type Peace palace The Hague and it will come up). Vredespaleis in Dutch. Palace tours in English and Dutch, unfortunately garden tours only in Dutch....

the building is absolutely beautiful... but my only complaint is that you have to book tours only on specific weekends. It would be awesome if they would open tours up during the week as well.

The visitor center is on the outside of the palace. It is free to go to and the interesting audio tour is also free. Access to the grounds are limited throughout the year so you are not likely to get in. The presentation is in multiple languages at your own pace. It is worth seeing and it is free. It... More

I went here with my friends. We did nothing but take photos from the outside of building. I don't know whether we can go inside the buildings or no, and how much you should pay for it. But I love the scene from the outside.

We were not able to visit the inside and the gardens, which was a real shame. Access seems to be somewhat limited, but there is a 30 minute audio tour and video that was worth spending the time doing.

The Peace Palace is a must see when visiting The Hague. There are limited dates to actually enter the palace but the vistor's center has a free, self-guided audio tour that is well worth it. If you happen to visit the Hague when the Palace is open for tours, take advantage - you won't regret it.
