The Visitors Centre in The Hague's Peace Palace has officially opened. Tours of the Peace Palace will be given during the weekend.
The new Visitors Centre by the main entrance of the Peace Palace provides information about the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration and serves as a gateway to the Peace Palace Library and The Hague Academy for International Law.
In the Visitors Centre you can watch a short film, enjoy a permanent interactive exhibition and look at a scale model of this world-renowned Hague landmark. Information will be available in seven languages: Dutch, English, Spanish, Chinese, Russian and Arabic.
The Visitors Centre is open daily until October from 10.00 to 17.00 hrs., except Monday. During the winter, the centre closes at 16.00 hrs. A visit takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Admission is free.
There are now guided tours every weekend of the Peace Palace itself. There are no tours during the week as it is a working palace.
More information about the Peace Palace Visitors Centre and weekend tours can be found on the website of the Peace Palace.
