For the one who likes the history place, Peace Palace in The Hague is the right choice to be visited. It is free or no charge place. But u only need to play when youn want to enter toilet. From the head phone you can hear a clear information about the history of international court especially to one who related... 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

I travelled here on my own by train from Amsterdam (50 minutes) to Den Haag Centraal and I walked to the Peace Palace which is about two kilometres. My immediate bit of advice is that if you want to see the Palace itself then book a tour in advance. I booked mine just a few days before but it was... More

You can see The Peace Palace but you cannot go inside. However there is a small Visitor Centre and audio aids are available. Actually some of the people who are in the photos are quite interesting if not surprising given what we know about them now.

The peace palace is magnificent building with an amazingly rich history. You get to see the International tribunals where still today disputes between nations are resolved. You need to make an online booking in order to visit and you a get tour guide.

A visit to the Peace Palace gives you a very good and relatively quick impression of the history of the Peace Palace, what actually takes place there today and the tour provides a good overview of the architecture, the gifts that have been offered by many countries. Worthwhile visit!
