Why locals love it

Although the Ridderzaal is situated in the middle of the citycenter, the direct surrounding, the Binnenhof, is peacefull and solemn. In summer it is a perfect spot to relax and eat an icecream after hours of shopping.

Why you should visit it

The Ridderzaal was originally built as a manorial hall in the thirteenth century. After serving many purposes, it is now the political heart of The Netherlands. The thrones of the Dutch monarchs stands inside the Ridderzaal, the Houses of Parliament meet in its surrounding buildings.
