Peace Palace

Peace Palace

The Peace Palace is the most photographed building in The Hague. Here the International Court of Justice, the only judicial body of the United Nations outside New York, and the Permanent Court of Arbitration. Next to the entrance to the Peace Palace is the eternal peace flame. On the monument is the inscription: “May All beings find peace”. The monument is since 2004 surrounded by the world Vredespad, consisting of an edge of 196 stones and pebbles from 196 countries. Some stones are special: There is a stone from the Berlin Wall and a rock from the Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was trapped for years. The visitors Centre of the Peace Palace is open from Tuesday until Sunday. During the summer months, the opening hours are from 10 am to 5 pm. During the winter period (from November to March 22nd) There are adapted opening hours. The Peace Palace itself is especially open to the public on some days in summer and around the turn of the year. A tour through the large and small courtroom, the galleries and the Japanese room gives you an impression of the most beautiful spaces in the building. This world-famous location is within walking distance of our B&B. Check the website of the Peace Palace for the available times.

The American artist James Turrell has made a protected bowl to look at the sky in a special way. The ‘ celestial Vault ‘ is shaped as an ellipse and is thirty metres wide and forty metres long. The surrounding five-metre-high dune is sown with grass. Through a concrete passage, the visitor enters the artificial crater. In the middle there is a monumental bank of natural stone on which two people can sit. In the Duinkom, the light seems to bend over and the sky forms a vault, where you can look endlessly. On a higher dune stands the same bank where a panorama unfolds over the sea, the beach and the flat country beyond. This particular landschapskunst is based on the actual light that creates experiences of the individual viewer that transcend the purely sensory. This makes the Dutch light visible by Turrell in a special way and it gets an emotional and spiritual impact. From the dune you have a fantastic panoramic view. From B&B Valkenbosplein You can easily get there, by bike, by car or even walking. Go see that and experience it especially!
