Such a beautiful and moving tribute. I especially enjoyed the peace flame and the surrounding rock garden displaying rocks from countries around the world.

Beautiful building to start with. Very interesting to learn how the interior came to be, by donations from many countries all over the world.

I went there,but was told that you have to go on a guided tour and during the winter they are far between.If you want to go inside,check times for the guided tours prior to your visit.

The peace palace was the main reason that I wanted to visit The Hague, as the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration are such important and interesting UN bodies. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived, and at first I did not notice the visitors centre hidden off to the side, thinking the whole... More

Checked the Internet which advised The Peace Palace was opened between 13.00-17.00. Monday- Hopped onto the bus which stops directly outside. Took some photographs of the lovely gates then proceeded to enter the security area. A nice friendly man asked if he could help me...then went on to explain that the only area I could enter was the Information Centre...but... More

If you are in the Hague, why miss the chance to see the Peace Palace! The architecture is beautiful, as are the gardens and this is the international seat of law. You can relax at a bench, take lovely pictures, see the eternal fire for peace and briefly take a stroll in the Scheveningen bosjes/park closeby or see the sufi... More

The Peace Palace Visitor centre is free to the public. The self guided tour is really interesting, but is quite short. Personally, I think it is best to wait until there are guided tours of the actual Palace. They do not happen often, but they are definitely worth it. You can book these in advance for 9.50 Euro- just be... More

I didn't actually enter the palace, just went to the vistitors center. But still, you can learn about the history of peace and the palace with a nice free audio guide and some historical pieces inside the center. If you have time, do go there, it's totally worth it!

They do not let the public in every day. Be sure you look ahead and try and get a tour time. The tour is about an hour. Significant in that it is an international treasure and is a working building,Very sobering but inspiring that the world could work out some issues.

The Peace Palace is more then just a beautiful building: the rich cross-cultural background is impressive. It was built by several countries. And you will experience this when you'll visit. Book a guided tour, and all the insights and facts will be shared. Make sure to check the timings.
