"Paleis Noordeinde" Royal The Hague Tip by martin_nl
Royal The Hague, The Hague: 53 reviews and 65 photos
Since 1984, the Queen has used Noordeinde Palace as her place of work. The oldest part of the palace dates from before 1533, when the steward of the States of Holland, Willem van de Goudt, had the medieval farmhouse converted into a spacious residence. Frederik Hendrik considerably extended the house, now known as the Oude Hof. He bought surrounding plots of land, lengthened the main section and had wings built on both sides, thus creating the H-shaped building we know today.
Noordeinde Palace is one of three palaces (the others being Huis ten Bosch and the Royal Palace, Amsterdam) which the State has placed at the Queen's disposal by Act of Parliament.
Unfortunately the only part of the palace you can visit are the gardens, which are opened from sunrise till sunset.
