I went the exhibit which outside the peace palace and was interesting, I would call ok. This is free and open to everyone without tickets. However, having a tour of the peace palace, seeing the inside and hearing about the courts was well worth it if you can get tickets. They are not offered year round. They are only offered... More

Very impressive and majestic building. Well situated but also shielded off for general public. Didn't visit insides, but still looked great on outside.

This was a great/informative tour!! The 30-minute audio tour of the visitor center was totally worth it, though I wish I would have booked a tour of the palace in advance. That being said, I highly recommend you add this to your list of must-sees while touring through The Hague,

I visited the Vredes Paleis last year very briefly and was so glad that I made this stop! The feeling of locating my own native country around the Peace Flame was so exciting! Seeing all the other countries involved in world peace just reminded me that all is not lost! As a world nation, it is apparent that we all... More

My friend and I went here in hope of taking a tour around and learning all there was on offer. Sadly you had to book in advance and there were no tours available for us. This was a huge disappointment to us both but the building was just beautiful and there is a really cute statue outside the gates of... More

Tour of a very historic palace with building materials from all over the world. Our tour guide spoke great English & gave a nice overview of the building, where the idea for the peace palace originated, how the idea developed, and how Andrew Carneige funded most of it. The tour is not always available so we were happy to get... More

Nice building. Good muti-media services. Can easy to catch the most professional information about international court and cases.

I went there with a group of colleagues for whom a tour had been arranged. We were shown the courtroom, as well as a number of chambers where the judges meet before entering the actual courtroom. Very informative tour. We didn't visit the gardens as it was winter, and I thought I'd rather see it in the spring.
