Sorry guys but a large number of images have been removed from this and other threads because the images have been hotlinked.

Hotlinking, otherwise known as direct linking, is very poor internet etiquette. It is akin to an attack on another website by draining that site's bandwidth. It is a practice that is actively discouraged here at TRF.

The free image-hosting sites such as Photobucket, ImageShack etc are specifically designed to host hundreds of millions of photographs and should be the first choice for image-hosting when members wish to illustrate a thread with linked photographs.

Thanks for everyone's cooperation,

Warren

Look at this salon in Noordeinde Palace:

Queen Máxima, June 17th 2015

There are two almost identical green salons, only the fireplace and the chandelier show the difference.

This one at the left side of the 19th C extension at the backside of Noordeinde Palace and which leads to the King's study (the white furniture in the far-away room through the door).

This is the 19th C extension. You can see two L-shaped wings from the central loggia. The fireplace has a round opening and the chandelier is relatively simple.

The other one at the right side of the same extension. The fireplace has a square opening and the chandelier is more elaborate in comparison with the "twin salon" at the other side of the 19th C extension. This antichambre leads to the Gallery Hall and is used to assemble before entering that hall for a banquet. (It is one of the smaller venues at Noordeinde for a banquet).

I suppose so. D66 (political party) can stop whining about it at least. Now let's see if it will really attract the hurds of international tourists that they predicted. I doubt it.

I don't think that there is that much to see in the palace that is interesting art-wise since much of it burnt down in the 40-ties or was replaced in the 19th century. But the tea pavillion by Marot must be nice enough.

I admire the King for his pro-activity in this case. It seems that already in 2013, in the first year of his kingship, he requested an investigation about the desired opening of Noordeinde Palace to the public. The newspaper De Volkskrant Mr Filip Maarschalkerweerd, Director of the Royal House Archives, excused for the long time this investigation took: Noordeinde Palace is historic heritage and questions of logistic, technic, finances and security needed to be responded.

Mr Maarschalkerweerd and his commission reported to the King that Noordeinde Palace could be opened in summer holidays. The King then decided to open it during a limited time. After all it is a full working residence, not a museum. Not the whole palace will be opened, mainly the 17th C part (picture) will be opened. This incudes the ballrooms, the King's study, the balcony chamber, the gallery hall, the King's Stairs, the Indian Chamber, etc.

Large parts of the 19th C extension (picture) which includes the guest wing and thee wing with the offices and appartments remain closed for the public. Also the Royal Mews near Noordeinde Palace (picture) will be opened.

I'd never seen or come across photos of the 19th century extension ,just the facade with the balcony that we are used to seeing.

Yes, it is at the backside, the 19th C addition is waaaay bigger than the original 16th and 17th C corps-de-logis, which gives the optical illusion that Noordeinde Palace is just a mansion and nothing more. When standing in front (picture), no one would guess it is such a big building. It even hides hidden courts with maximum privacy for the royal family, in the middle of a crowded city: picture. We only see the 19th C extension when a head-of-state is welcomed on the courtyard there: picture. The neighbourhood sees the large extension like this: picture.

I think it is good that Noordeinde Palace will no be opened in the Summer Holidays. An i also think it is enough that the rooms which are used for official Events are opened. There is no need to see the offices and guest appartements. In other Palaces who are open to the Public these are also not open except for the Royal palace in Stockholm where the State Guest Appartements can be visited.
