Only place visited not on our iamsterdam card. The admission price included audio guide. Spectacular palace used for for special guests and some functions. Much of the rooms decorated and furnished for viewing from its doorways. Carvings and architecture is outstanding. Recommended

Not much to look at on the outside but inside lots of Royal rooms. Each room is described on audio. Beautiful paintings and furniture.

The presentation, audio guides and written descriptions were interesting and informative. It was worth an hour or two roaming the halls and visiting the rooms.

While is not quite the regal residence to be found in other capitals the facade is dirty and just unappealing. Too sad because the decorations and architectural details are nice.

The palace’s architecture is grand and the building makes a bold statement in central Amsterdam. Its design is both simple and elegant. The public square in front of the palace is used for celebrations such as the recent Gay Pride Weekend. It is also possible...More

It is a very interesting building to visit. I would not say WOW to the building itself, but the free audio guide is very good and allows you to understand the history of the building. The Great Hall is very nice.

This palace was originally a town hall before becoming a palace. The duality of the place and the rooms various uses were very interesting. Capital punishment, who knew? Very neat history. If you’re looking for an opulent palace, this isn’t it. Price for the visit...More

Beautiful palace. The main attraction from the outside is of course the architecture while it was also very interesting in the inside

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

It is up to you, you can explore in your own pace. The recording is little over one hour. Between 1 - 1.5 h should be sufficient. You have only one floor to explore and you can not enter many of the rooms.

Right next to Royal Palace, is the lane Kalverstraat with many restaurants. Right across it, is another area littered with places to eat. I doubt you will have issues finding a place to eat nearby. Enjoy!
