Peace Palace (Vredespaleis), the centre for world peace. Every day many tourists stop to admire this impressive building which houses the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration. The building and the organisations within it give The Hague worldwide recognition as the city of peace and justice. By the entrance you will find the Eternal Flame of Peace with the inscription May all beings find peace. In the recently opened Visitors’ Centre you can see an interactive exhibition and film about the history of the Peace Palace and follow a guided tour.

The Peace Palace is globally known as the temple of peace and justice. But what is it that we are actually doing at the Peace Palace? And how does this contribute to a more peaceful world?
This is explained in our new introduction movie. Moreover, beautiful aerial images of the Peace Palace show the iconic building from a unique perspective.

Tickets for the guided tours are sold only on the website.
