Dam Square is very large and vibrant, with throngs of people all over. The National Monument is located here, as is the Nieuwe Kerk, but the one we wanted to see the most was the Royal Palace. We were fortunate to be there on a day when it was open to the public and we really enjoyed our visit.
King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands host a State Banquet at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam in honor of the King and Queen of the Belgians. Members of the Dutch Royal Family, including former Queen princess Beatrix, are also present.
The Royal Palace in Amsterdam is one of four palaces in the Netherlands, which is at the disposal of Queen Beatrix by Act of Parliament. The palace was built as city hall during the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century (1655). It is situated in the west side of Dam Square in the centre of Amsterdam, opposite the War Memorial and next to the Nieuwe Kerk. It was built by Jacob van Campen (1596-1657), Amersfoort), a Dutch artist and architect. Jacob van Campen was inspired by Roman administrative palaces. He drew inspiration from the public buildings of Rome. He wanted to build a new capitol for the Amsterdam burgomasters. The palace was built on 13,659 wooden piles. From 2005 until June 2009 the palace was renovated. Since 14 June 2009, it is open again to visitors.
http://www.inyourpocket.com It's hard to miss the Royal Palace on Dam Square. When the building was first opened to the public as the Town Hall in 1655, its lavish interior decorated with paintings by Ferdinand Bol and Rembrandt was considered to be the eighth wonder of the world. Louis Napoleon made it his personal residence in 1808 when he briefly served as the King of Holland, but it later became the possession of the House of Orange. Opposite the Royal Palace is the National Monument that's often occupied by people of all ages and nationalities sunning themselves, reading books or just relaxing. The brainchild of renowned Dutch architect J.J.P. Oud (1890 - 1963), the National Monument made of white travertine was unveiled in 1956 as both a memorial to all Dutch men and women who suf...

Het Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog.
In 1806 Louis Napoleon becomes the first King of Holland. And a King needs a castle. So he goes to The Hague, which had been the seat of government for centuries. But Louis doesn’t last very long there. He feels The Hague is boring. Of course, that’s before Miniature world Madurodam is built. For Louis, Amsterdam is the place to be. It’s Holland's most important city for trade and canal-side walks. Louis moves into the Amsterdam City Hall on Dam Square, which became the Dam Palace. Wouldn’t you like to live in a damn palace? And as of 1808, Amsterdam is regarded more or less as the capital of Holland. Two years later, Louis gets kicked out of his royal residence, eventually to be replaced by our new king, William. He opts to reside in The Hague, but allows Amsterdam to keep the title of...
