Overview

Royal Palace of Amsterdam, the grand reception palace of King Willem-Alexander's. This royalty monarch is situated at the core of Amsterdam. History says that at the age of Golden Dutch, the municipality of Amsterdam pronounced to create an intricate and royal hall at the west side of Dam square, which would represent the growing Dutch Republicans and it's managerial potential. The Royal Palace was created by Jacob van Campen, who was influenced by the Roman Dynasty's architectural plan.

Thus, the work of Campen was done by 1655, and this aristocratic and imperial hall was inaugurated as a cooperative palace in 1806. Today the Palace is open for all its visitors. Still, before 1806 when the Netherlands was under the governing power of the French Empire, this Royal Palace belonged to the King of Holland, Louis Napoleon I, and it was his residential place.

After the French Dynasty was over for the Netherlands, it was baptized to the first King of the Netherlands, King William I. It was still under the residential Palace of King William I. Since then, it had been serving the Royal Dutch Family. Many critical receptions, including the ritualistic celebrations, were celebrated there, also the victory of the Netherlands over Indonesia in 1949 and the crowning of Queen Beatrix in 1980. 

First of it is the Royal Palace, which had some great history from the French Rule to the crowing of Queen Beatrix to King William-Alexander's reception.

Second, it is famous because of its perseverance of rich culture and royal architectural plans and designs. The carves of the monument are impressive, eye-catching, and so dramatically built that one can remain enchanted with the beauty of the Royal Palace for its rest of life.

The interior of the Royal Palace is full of sculptures, carves, and some striking painting and illustration borough by some world-renowned artists and painters like Rembrandt and Ferdinand Bol. The center of the hall has some compositions and sketches which represent the Dutch sovereign. The monument is still glowing for more than a century and a half.

A dark and tragic place with a sad experience. First of all, the windows were shut. There was not a chance to see how the building was situated or how life in the palace miss has been. All I could see was a couple of dusty rooms from a distance and a marble hallway. All the rooms virtually looked the same. The area where you are allowed seems to be prepared for tourists only, and they don't want to spend any money on providing a fantastic visit to the palace. They shut down most of the audio tour because of serving more visitors, told one of the staff members. Not the experience I was hoping for. The staff was friendly-just like a guard at an office building is friendly- however, they knew nothing about the building.

We enjoyed pour visit to this inspiring, very grand building - formerly Amsterdams’ town hall. Great audio guide available in a myriad of languages, which tell the story of this magnificent palace. Convenient location in Dam square, thus good if staying in nearby hotels.

A powerful experience, one that will stay with me. Despite my e-ticket not having been emailed to me, a very helpful guide was able to find my reservation and I was able to experience the museum. An absolute must when visiting Amsterdam.

Beautiful and ancient architectural palace of the Dutch Royal Family. Located on Dam Square right in the heart of Amsterdam. Truly a magnificent site to see. The square also has many other attractions in and around it. A must see stop on your travels through Amsterdam.

Fantastic museum. A hidden gem. Did not know this initial used town hall was so enhanced with art. The sculptures alone took 17 years to complete!
