Description

Get fast-track access into the Royal Palace Amsterdam, one of three palaces in the country used by the Dutch Royal House. See what heads of state and other important guests see at state banquets - murals, chandeliers, arched ceilings, and classic paintings and sculptures. Feel like a royal as you set your eyes on fine art and gorgeous Napoleonic furniture in here.

Still in use by the Dutch Royal House, the Royal Palace Amsterdam hosts state visits, award ceremonies, New Year’s receptions and other royal events. With these fast-track tickets, you can get the chance to wander the insides of this royal palace, without waiting for a royal invite.

Looming over Dam Square, this 17th-century monolith has been one of the hottest spots in the city for 350 years. During the Dutch Golden Age, it was built as the town hall, and its importance is more than obvious in the architecture and opulent marble interior. When Louis Napoleon (brother of le petit caporal) was the King of Holland, he co-opted it, turning it from town hall into his royal palace in 1808.

When you step inside you'll discover paintings and sculptures by the likes of Rembrandt’s pupils, Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck. Admire the furniture, chandeliers, art, and clocks as you walk these hallowed marble halls. Your audio guide (available in eight different languages) will fill you in on the remarkable history and fascinating interior as you walk.
