Even if the Peace Palace is not open it is still worth going and walking around the area and seeing the beauty of the building, and the monuments that surround it.

The Peace Palace is not always open, but if it is you should definitely visit. The tour gives an excellent summary of what was and is going on there. Make sure to bring your passport

The Peace Palace in The Hague is an all-time favorite of mine, mainly because of the beautiful architecture of the building. I've taken the tour several times and each time I simply gawk at the beauty of the arches and the palace grounds. If you are going to visit the Peace Palace, make sure you arrange for the guided/informational tour.... More

I went on fri and they had tour tickets for Sunday available to go inside the palace. On fri we did the free audio tour inside the visitor center while we were there and returned on Sunday for our palace tour. No phones, bags, drinks allowed on tour, but they have free lockers to store belongings. It is beautiful inside... More

The actual place was closed (the courts were in session), when I was there... but was able to go inside the visitor centre which I strongly recommend. For a few Euro, you can take an audio tour explaining the purpose and history of the Peace Palace. The entire audio tour is a bit less than 30 minutes. Definitely worth the... More
