Noordeinde Palace is one of the three official palaces of the Dutch royal family. Located in The Hague in the province of South Holland, it has been used as the "working palace" for King Willem-Alexander since 2013. The Palace will be open to public for four consecutive Saturdays, starting tomorrow July 23, 2016, with tickets costing 6 euros per person.

The Dutch royal family have opened the doors to one of their three palaces for the first time, allowing the public to catch a glimpse of their lavish living quarters.  One of the many dining rooms features perfectly lined up chairs inside the Noordeinde Palace in The Hague

Apparently the original farmhouse's cellars can still be seen today in the Noordeinde palace's basement, elsewhere priceless antiques are dotted around

Noordeinde Palace is where many official and state functions take place. Each year on Prinsjesdag (Prince’s Day, also known as Budget Day), the Sovereign travels by coach from Noordeinde Palace to open the Dutch Parliament and give a speech.
