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 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.
