Visit the Most Photographed Building in the City
The Peace Palace is the most photographed building in The Hague which isn’t surprising considering what it symbolises. This splendid Neo-Renaissance structure represents peace and justice around the world. Not only does it house the seat of the International Court of Justice, but it also has a piece of each country embedded into its architecture. Surrounding the eternal flame is the World Peace Path, constructed with 196 stones from countries around the world. Stones from the fall of the Berlin Wall and Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned are just two of the many you can see.
The Peace Palace is open to the public on some weekends throughout the year, but if the timing of your trip doesn’t correspond, you can still amble along historic pathways and photograph the magnificent building from beautifully sculpted gardens.
