Noordeinde Palace Tours

Although the Dutch royal family has a total of four palaces throughout the Netherlands, including one in Amsterdam, today the royals prefers to work from The Hague. In the historic center of the city, Noordeinde Palace has been office to King Willem-Alexander since 2013.

With its roots going back to 1533 when wealthy aristocrat Willem van de Goudt turned the farmhouse into a stately home, the Noordeinde wasn’t used as a palace until 1609, when it was presented to William of Orange’s widow in recognition of her husband’s service to the Dutch nation.

Seventeenth-century Dutch super-architect Jacob van Campen, who built the Koninklijk Paleis (Royal Palace) in Amsterdam, had a hand in developing the Noordeinde’s Renaissance style. He created the H-shaped building seen today, along with many of the building’s serene, classical attributes, such as the equestrian statue in the courtyard, a tribute to William of Orange. The grounds include the Royal Stables and Palace Garden and make a good stop on a stroll through the city center.
