Peace Palace

Beautiful building home of the International Court of Justice. It has great gardens. A good place for photo ops or in-depth legal research

The Hague is the city of peace and justive and the peace palace/Vredespalijs is one of the main attractions. A bit strange because normally you dont hear much about the two courts which are operational from it. It has a collection of exceptional gifts and was funded by Carnegy, the steel magnate from the US. It is special because there... More

Spent a few hours here and the architecture and gardens are simply stunning. Took our lunch with us and sat in the peaceful garden watching all the tourists with their cameras. A nice afternoon in the sunshine. On the tram line number 1 from the centrum.

This palace is a nice thing just to see. It's not as if it is the most impressive thing in the world, but as a history major, it was nice to see the international court

A beautiful building and an important place. You can access the visitors center for free. There is a nice free audio history and introduction to the Peace Palace. Don't expect to go inside or even onto the grounds unless you have planned it during a time when it is possible. Unfortunately, there is so much international conflict going on that... More

as a local and an international lawyer I admit to being 100% biased. Until recently I would have recommended just admiring the Peace Palace from the outside, but since the inside was rennovated to celebrate its centenniary I must urge you to take the time to take a tour. It is beautifully done. If you are only in The Hague... More

The Peace Palace itself is open to visitors only a few days a month, only for tours booked in advance, and -- when I checked on-line -- only in Dutch. Otherwise, your visit is confined to taking pictures of the palace through the front gate and the visitors center. The center offers a multi-media introduction to the Peace Palace (it's... More

Beautiful and historic building Highlighting Gardens are wonderful and beautifully taken cared for. Nice outside sitting areas for enjoying the gardens and outside of building. Lowlights No public tours available until June so missed the opportunity to see the inside of building

Learned lots of history. The movies and audio are free at the visitor center. To see inside the Peace Palace need to check the schedules and have to make advance reservations. Best place to visit for young and old.

An interesting building, but it can not be visited. You could buy a picture. The visitors center offers a description of the foundation and operations and a clearly self-serving but generally useless description of some of the "successes" of the courts.
