Peace Palace

European Heritage Label


The European Heritage Label marks heritage sites that have been important in the history of Europe and through the ideals they represent, have played a part in the creation of unity. The Peace Palace embodying the ideals of peace and justice, has been selected by the European Commission as such a place. The wish to settle international conflicts with the help of law and justice can be traced back to European history and traditions.

During the ‘European Heritage Label Days’ 2017 in Estonia, Marie Tourneux developed the ‘European Heritage Label Map’. This map shows all the places that have received the label so far.
