Initially built as a city hall in 1648, the palace is now at the disposal of Dutch royalty headed by Queen Beatrix. In many ways, this impressive building is the centrepiece of Amsterdam, presiding over the heart of the city on Dam Square. The Royal Palace is a stunning example of Dutch architectural brilliance in the height of its Golden Age in the seventeenth century. In fact, at the time it was built, it was the largest secular building in Europe. The Palace is closed for visitors during royal events, so its best to check the official websites calendar which outlines which days the building is open to the public.
