I think a visit to the Hague is incomplete without a visit to the Peace Palace. There are various monuments that shows efforts to keep the world at peace. Though the palace is closed to tourists, there is a visitors' session where you have a forty minutes audio tour of how the palace was built. There is also a lamp... More

Fantastic building and quite an interesting history that goes along with it. If in the area is definitely worth visiting, such a spectacular building. Its not that far a walk from the main city centre which is good as you don't have to pay fro transport..

The outside of the building is impressive but if you get a chance to visit the inside it is recommended. Quite a building!

This was fascinating & we would loved to have done a tour around the Palace itself. In the event the exhibition was still very interesting & I learnt a lot about the Palace. Would go again for the tour.

Take a lovely walk from the city centre out to the Peace Palace for a great experience. Make sure you look at the opening hours if you wish to go inside although still a marvelous view and photo opportunity from the outside. Many great displays inside the display area which give a great overview of history from the 1890s, in... More

This is a remarkable building. Some 15 min walk from the very center. Went there twice, once during day time, once during the night when it looks so mystical. Unfortunately you cannot enter it on a daily basis. There are guided organized tours which occur mainly on weekends, so look ahead for it. In front of the entrance to the... More

The display area with headsets in various languages is free and done very well. Takes about 30 min. Gives the complete history from 1890 to present. The actual palace does not have tours however.
