From this wikipedia page:

Quote:
The Binnenhof (Dutch, lit. "inner court"), is a collection of buildings in The Hague. It has been the location of meetings of the Staten-Generaal (the Dutch parliament) since 1446, and has been the centre of Dutch politics for centuries.
The grounds on which the Binnenhof now stands was purchased by Count Floris IV of Holland in 1229, where he built his mansion. More buildings were constructed around the court, several of which are well known in their own right, such as the Ridderzaal (great hall; literally Knight's Hall) (pictured), where the queen holds her annual speech at Prinsjesdag. One of the towers, simply known as het Torentje (the small tower; pictured) has been the working space of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands since 1982.
The Binnenhof was also the site where statesman Johan van Oldenbarnevelt was executed in 1619.

Binnenhof Palace, the Hague

Hey guys,

Someone from the Netherlands here who doesn't understand why noone ever mentioned the Binnenhof Palace in the Hague. Prins Floris IV once used it. During the '90 the building was restored.

Sinds a long time the palace is used as the ministry of general affairs, office of the Prime-Minister and house of the first and second Parlements.

The new house of representatives is now situated in the renovated part of the building.

There was already a thread about the inner court, so I merged the two. The Maurits house has a thread of its own, since it isn't part of the inner court. You can find that thread here.
