Peace Palace Peace and Justice

Guided tours

Regular guided tour

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. A ticket costs € 9,50. There are no discounts. Children up to 10 years old can participate in a guided tour for free (with a maximum of 2 children per adult).

Tickets for a guided tour of the Peace Palace are only sold on this website. Tours have a duration of approximately 45 minutes and are offered in Dutch and in English. A group consists of a maximum of 20 people. We recommend you to visit the exhibition and watch the film in the Visitors Centre before participating in a guided tour.

The Peace Palace has limited access to strollers, wheelchairs and walkers. Unfortunately, mobility scooters cannot be admitted. Our guided tours are not recommended for young children.
