    Very beautiful building, I wasn't in Dam square too long on this trip so not sure if you can go inside. A nice area to people watch and get some nice pictures.

    Base of streetlamp outside the Royal Palace

    These heraldic lions form the base of street lamps outside the Royal Palace. Like the building i=tself they are quite impressive

    Dutch Royal Palace

    I could not believe it was the Royal Palace - there is NO security or even gates at the front!
    From a distance I just thought it may have been the town hall, boy was I wrong! ;)

    Royal Palace

    Though it dominates much of Dam Square, the Royal Palace looked a little bit old and shrivelled. I think it is the Queen's official residence though she spends most of her time in Den Haag.

    The Royal Palace and Dam Square
    The Queen doesn't live here, but uses it to welcome other kings and presidents and the likes and it is used for exhibitions.

    The Royal Palace is situaded at the "Dam" square. It doesn't seem very royal, and may not even look like a palace at all. Jacob van Campen designed this building.

    The back of the Royal Palace. Tom told me that the world boll on the back of Atlas is weighing 500 kg. And then I should complain that my day-backpack is too heavy . . . .

    Look at (and inside) some of the historical buildings. For example the royal palace at 'de Dam' (Damsquare).
    Go inside and find an exposition (changes regularly).
