Threatening on Dam Square, this 17th century monolith has been one of the city's main attractions for 350 years. During the Dutch Golden Age it was built as a town hall and its importance is obvious for its architecture and its opulent marble interior. When Louis Napoleon (brother of The Little Cape) was king of Holland, he appropriated the building, converting it as the town hall into his own royal palace in 1808.
When you enter you will discover paintings and sculptures by artists such as the students of Rembrandt, Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck. Admire the furniture, chandeliers, art and watches as you walk through these sacred marble halls. Your audio guide (available in eight different languages) will tell you the extraordinary story and the fascinating interior design.
