Royal Palace Amsterdam (Koninklijk Paleis)

The impressive Royal Palace Amsterdam, located on Dam Square, is one of Amsterdam's top attractions. It was built in the Dutch Golden Age as the city hall for Amsterdam. It later became a palace for the royal family, a function it still has to this day. Consequently, it's not always open to the public.

It plays a key role during State visits and it's also home to some pretty amazing 17th-century art - representing the Dutch Golden Age.

Royal Palace Amsterdam: Fast Track + Audio Guide
Our visit to the Royal Palace was really good, we bought the tickets online whilst having a coffee in a nearby cafe, then made our way the palace which was very easy to find! The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The audio tour was excellent and very informative. I felt the Royal Palace experience was very good value for money especially in a city where most things to do can be quite expensive.

Royal Palace Amsterdam: Fast Track + Audio Guide
The visit was interesting and the audio guide gave excellent commentary. The technology behind the audio guide was a little temperamental. However the opportunity to hear further elaboration on particular displays did add value. As a palace it was not the grandest but it did convey the feeling of being a working facility rather than a purely historical pile.
