Create an itinerary including Peace Palace
Often a host to policy talks, legal seminars, and other events, Peace Palace serves as the permanent home to the United Nations' International Court of Justice. The ornate building, topped by a tower, represents the culmination of international efforts at the turn of the 20th century to create an international forum to avoid war and conflict. Stop by the visitor center for information about the court and its daily workings or to learn more about the building and grounds themselves. Though not open to the public, you can access the institution by taking a guided tour and exploring the intricately decorated interior, replete with busts of famous figures, domed ceilings, and vaulted hallways. Be sure to check the website to see available tour times.

  • We visited the visitors centre. Staff very friendly. Free audio tour explaining the Peace Palace and its role in world peace
  • Peace Palace is an International Law Administrative Building and a Worldwide Icon of Peace through Law and Order. Constructed in the early 20th century, it has been the home of International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration, etc. Its Neo-Renaissance Styled Architecture, along with many Gifts from different Countries it contains, Peace Palace is a wonderful tourist attraction indeed. Because I wasn't able to view the interiors, only took this picture from outside the Gate, hence I am giving a 3 Star Rating only, Nevertheless, I have seen some online Photos which are very beautiful surely.
