Royal Palace Amsterdam was once a city hall and royal palace; today it's used by the Dutch monarch for hosting official events. Built during the Dutch Golden Age in 1665, the site features prominent paintings and sculptures created by distinguished artists of the era, as well as lavish Empire furniture from the early 19th century. Take an audio tour and hear about the history of the palace. Walk through the extravagant rooms and offices, filled with golden elements and brightly colored, highly realistic paintings. You'll encounter works by Flinck, Lievens, and Jordaens. Plan my day in Amsterdam using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • The audio tour was fantastic alongside some amazing history, decor and architecture. Would highly recommend to anyone in the vicinity. The tour does take a few hours and if you don't have a coach load of children taking the tour at the same time, then it's a very peaceful and pleasant experience.
  • Number one place to visit in Amsterdam! Don’t forget to take audio guide! Interesting history and amazing architecture. So many arts and sculptures inside. Even some small basic room has huge story. You must visit Royal Palace to get a clear picture about this amazing country and city.
