Peace Palace

Guided tours

Has a visit to the Visitors Centre left you curious as to what can be found behind the impressive facade of the Peace Palace? On some weekends throughout the year and for a couple of weeks in summer, the doors of the Palace open to the public. A guide will tell you about the building and about the institutions housed in it. A tour through the Great and Small Hall of Justice, the corridors and the Japanese Room will give you an impression of the most beautiful rooms of the Palace.
