The Royal Palace Amsterdam, the official residence of King Willem-Alexander, is right in the middle of the capital city. Follow in the footsteps of royal guests in the imposing rooms and halls!

Former city hall

The Royal Palace Amsterdam is the official residence of King Willem-Alexander. It is also open to the public for the better part of the year. The Royal Palace was built in the 17th century as the city hall of Amsterdam. The building is based on a design by Jacob van Campen.

Power & wealth

Paintings and sculptures by famous artists are a symbolic reference to the power and wealth the city of Amsterdam possessed in the 17th century. When Napoleon’s brother Louis came to the Netherlands in 1808, the city hall was converted into a palace. The stunning collection of Empire style furniture, clocks and chandeliers are reminiscent of the early 19th century.

Always check the opening hours on the website, the Palace may be closed due to a royal visit.
