Binnenhof is the Dutch government building. In front of a small pond, it is an impressive landscape in Den Haag. More interested visitors can join a guided tour to get in the huge structure.

We were unable to visit the interior as it was closed. As we found out later this was due to the Ukraine Prime Minister visiting The Hague!

The 13th-century Gothic castle was originally the seat of the counts of Holland, and it later served as the main government building of the Dutch Republic. Today, the castle is home to the upper and lower houses of the parliament, as well as the prime minister's office.
The central building of the castle represents the magnificent grand hall, with a throne from which the Dutch monarch delivers the parliament's opening speech.

The buildings back onto a beautiful lake where there are plenty of seats to relax and take a break

A nice peaceful walk around. There are cafes around but also plenty of space to seat or stand and take in the view. We simply walked the circumference, took about 30mins

Built in the 13th century, this is a very pretty building with a nice lake called Hofvijver at the back. The building is used for government type offices. It is one of the oldest parliament buildings in the world.

The Binnenhof is a must see in Den Haag.
The view from the river of this architectonic wonder is worth a visit in the city center, during the day or at night.

i've ridden my bike through here many times on the way to the Pathe movie complex nearby. i once saw the prime minister walking between buildings. it's old and impressive. well worth a walk through if you're in the area.

Very interesting, very recommended. This was the first attraction we saw in Europe, and even after all we saw, this is still very well remembered. Please take a tour if you want to see more and learn more.

It is a remarkable blast to the past in terms of architecture as well as culture. Ridder...Stands for Knights and thus the House of the order of Knights. It is a learning experience as well as a repository of your best memories and then some. If visiting anywhere near The Hague, try and make it a point to stop, see, enjoy, learn and keep. Above all, ENJOY !!

Great tour of Binnenhof with a local tourguide. We strongly recommend booking in advance as it sells out very quickly.
Interesting guide which provided us with information about all the buildings. You can enter De Ridderzaal.

The Binnenhof has been the seat of government of the Netherlands since the 13th century or even longer. The magnificent Ridderzaal (Knight’s hall) was built between 1248 and 1280 and some quite sizeable rooms below the big hall are believed to be even older. Many historical buildings were added throughout the years, e.g. the impressive hall of the senate in 1655. This believed to be the oldest government building still in use today. Despite some security measures you can just walk into the inner square of the Binnenhof and see government officials walk around.
