The Royal Palace of Amsterdam is one of the four royal palaces in the Netherlands. It was originally a town hall and court.

The highlights here are its architecture and the magnificent decoration in the palace. All places in the citizen's hall are covered with marble.

Famous Residences
On July 6, 1942, Anne Frank and her Jewish family went into hiding here from the Nazis. They survived in solitude for over two years, but there was not a happy ending. Although the original furnishings were removed by the German occupation, Anne Frank's beloved diary paints a vivid picture of what life was like. The museum was opened to the public in 1960 and was joined by an impressive visitors center in the 1980s.
