The building itself is an actual court, so only limites visitor hours per month. But if you can get in, its a lasting memory. Full with presents of the rules at the time, including a vase from the Russian tsaar that is so massive that it needed its own foundation. The visitor center is informative as well. It seems to...

Tours of the palace are available in August, it is possible to go in to hear the cases in session, check online to see what is scheduled during your visit to The Hauge. The building itself was built at the beginning of the 20th century with a generous grant from Andrew Carnige. He stipulated that there also be a library... More

The outside of the Peace Palace is beautiful. The inside of the Peace Palace is very interesting. However, you cannot photograph the inside. My husband and I were very disappointed. Also they only offer a few postcards of the Peace Palace’s in the visitor’s center. The tour is only given at certain times and it is too long and bogged... More

This place was just not worth our time or money. You can only go around with a guide which is fair enough as its a working place, but the tour was so inadequate and the content so boring as to make a total waste of time. This is only worth doing if you have an interest in law and want... More

Yes, we were disappointed that the only English directed tour was two days after we would be leaving. However, the visitor centre audio tour gave us plenty of information. I highly recommend going...even the area is fantastic just to walk around. The embassies are quite interesting as well!

And no English tours on Saturdays. Only Dutch tours on Saturday, apparently an English tour on Mondays. But it looks pretty nice from the outside...

Just went to look at the outside of the building. There's a Visitor's Centre off to the left with a free 30 minutes audio tour about the palace which is very informative. Whilst there heard someone booking a tour, so enquired and there was an English tour later in the day, which I did. Cost €9.50 + photo ID. Luckily... More

The Peace Palace itself is not open to the public but it has a worthwhile visitor centre. There's not a lot to see by the clever audio guide lasts for 30 minutes. Most of it is just listening while look at a few historical documents and artefacts, but it does offer up a fascinating slice of history since 1917.

The building is impressive due to the history and stories behind it. The building itself, although made with incredible detail and ornaments, not amazing.

The building is quite astonishing to look at and since it's in walking distance from the city centre you should definitely have a look at it. Also take a moment to notice the peace fire with stones from every country on the right side of the fence of the palace. The only complaint I'd have is that you can't enter... More
