We just happened to get off the train just outside of the gates of the Peace Palace! We wanted to see if we could take a tour. Unfortunately there weren't tours the day we were there, but they did offer a free self guided tour with a headset. We took that and learned a great deal about this historic place.... More

Make sure you book (on line or in advance somehow) as this is a very unique place in the world. The architecture is gorgeous as are the stunning pieces donate as gifts by many member countries. The Japanese silk tapestries are world the trip alone. I loved the main court room and it's lovely stained glass windows. I just wish... More

The Peace Palace in the Hague, houses the International Justice Courts. Due to its humanitarian work and service provided to various nations, I have been intrigued by the design choices mad, for such kind of an 'international palace' and it has been on my 'to visit list' for a while. The exterior view is bold, not severely imposing, with a... More

The beautiful classic Peace Palace is befitting the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the International Court of Justice located inside the ornate structure. The Peace Palace was a site intended, in part, as symbol of international law. You don't actually 'see' justice served in a visible sense, so the grand structure is symbolic. The palace sits some distance from the... More

It's the seat of the International Court of Justice. You see on the postcard all the time, good to go there and see yourself. The only thing is you need to make a reservation for a tour. But it worths it.
