Royal Palace Amsterdam

The history of the Royal Palace Amsterdam

Between 1648 and 1665, the impressive building was built according to the designs of Jacob van Campen. The monument was originally a town hall and was intended to reflect the wealth and power of Amsterdam. It was not until 1808, when Napoleon used his brother Louis as King of the Netherlands, that it became a palace. Five years later, in 1813, the French withdrew from Amsterdam. In 1814, Willem I was crowned king here. Since then, it is the seat of the royal family of Oranje-Nassau. Today, the palace is still state visits, royal occasions and the like used. In between, it is open to visitors.
