Some of the official rooms and halls might,yes,to some extend untill you see it for yourself.....But the private- and guest appartments on the 2nd floor are an entirely different story but then I don't have pics of that,strictly private.It has more overall class and chic then fe Buck house.

Guess it is a matter of taste, but to me you could plunk that building down in Utrecht or Strasbourg or Frankfurt and it would not look out of place with any other city hall of the period. The Dutch really should have made The Hague the capital as it has much more elegant streetscapes and palaces for royal ceremonies and processions.

This is a pic made by ME,all of the following are made by ME.Thank you.You can tell as the quality isn't all that great due to being not allowed to use flash in the palace,see.






Mine,so I post assuming that is OK..






All mine.All made by moi!








The vase depicts a painting belonging to the Dutch Royal Family earlyer untill the death of King Willem II in 1849.He left huge debts to his brother-in-law the Tsar and by means of meeting up with the debts a massive amount of Rembrandt's and what not went to St.petersburg.in return the Tsar had the paintings painted on vases and returned them to Anna Pavlovna.So the vase is one of many in the collection of the Royal House.
It is also the reason why the Hermitage Sint Petersburg has such a vast collection of Dutch Masters within its walls.




The room with either paintings or statuetes of previous Monarchs,from Wilhelmina and back







King Willem I

The table on which the Act of Abdication was signed...and a nuisance of a screen showing it all and turning the light in the hall into a ..oh well,see for yourself...




Yes!Still all made by me.I mean it shows doesn't it?Good.















Former Throne room





King Louis Napolčon,King of The Netherlands from 1806 and 1810 when he was dismissed from his post by his brother.It was LN who turned what was the cioty hall into the Royal Palace as we know it today,and it was LN who decided Amsterdam to be the Capital of the country instead of The Hague.




Bad quality I know,but the chair isn't.It is part of the Amsterdam Royal Palace largest set of Empire furniture outside France,due to Louis Napolčon.






Feel free to use the pics,allthough you would be daft as the quality isn't all that good.Still,a pic is still better then no pic ....

OK, this may have been said, but the inside of the palace has been Google Mapped to street view. So you can click on the the yellow man and the blue lines in the palace to enter street view and wander around inside. Amazing!

The Hague is the political capital of the world so it's fine

All pics posted are made by me.




April 30th









From my collection.

Antique early 19th century print depicting Dam Square and the Palace.

You see the balcony missing.That wasn't added until King Louis Napolčon in 1807 over the
entire front of the Palace.Later reduced to its present proportions by Queen Wilhelmina.

Just learned that this vase,part of a set of two at the Palace,plus several paintings from the Palace are packed and sent off to the Hermitage St.Petersburg for the exhibition there:' Masterpieces,Willem II and Anna Pavlovna,Royal Splendour at The Netherlands Court" .

The exhibition is held in the frame of 400 year relations between Russian and The Netherlands and also connects with the 200th anniversary of the Kingdom of The Netherlands.

Willem II purchased a huge amount of paintings,while Anna,younger sister of Tsars Alexander I and Nicolas I, was famous for her jewelry

Two rooms on the -closed- 3rd floor of the palace have been temporarily opened for the public: the grand and the small war counsil halls. The halls have been closed for the public since 1817. Originally the halls had a lot of paintings of the city guards (schutterij) by Rembrandt and such. The grand hall was the original location for the Night Watch of Rembrandt, since the painting didn't fit the wall, they cut of the sides. King Louis Napoleon used the two halls to starts a museum (that later developped into the Rijksmuseum).

The exhibition will show some original paintings of the city guards and also some copies (of the Night Watch as the original is in the Rijks). The mayor has hopes that the rooms will stay open for the public after the exhibition.

Eenmalig gluren op derde etage vanaf het paleis op de Dam - AMSTERDAM - PAROOL (just as a reference, it doesn't contain pictures).

Edit: I found a picture:
war council rooms | Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam
Apparently the group photo of WA's inauguration was made in the larger room.

Is there a chapel within the Palace or was given the proximity of the Nieuwe Kerk was that used in lieu of a Palace chapel?

I have no idea THB, not a public one at least. The only royals who ever lived there were King Louis Napoleon and Queen Hortense. I have no idea where they went to church as there weren't any public catholic churches in Amsterdam yet at the time. Maybe they had a temporary chapel in the building.

After they left, the palace was used only when the royals visited Amsterdam, which was one week per year or so in the 19th century. I guess they may have used the New Church, the Wester Church or another one when they did.

Thanks Marengo I should have asked during my last visit to the Palace,the reason I asked is I read that Louis Bonaparte's chapel ornaments were donated to a church possibly in the Netherlands and wondered if he had a small chapel at the Palace.
