Guided Tour: Dutch House of Representatives

Explore the Dutch House of Representatives and gain insight into the Dutch political system. Learn about the history of the House and the ongoing renovation of the ‘Binnenhof’, the medieval complex that houses the parliament buildings.

Our guide will lead you through the temporary home of the Dutch House of Representatives, explaining its functioning, detailing the Dutch political system, and highlighting architectural features of the ‘modern’ (1970s) building. Discover the reasons behind the presence or absence of coat of arms on seats within the House of Representatives, and hear both historical anecdotes and current developments that shape political life in The Hague. Feel free to ask any questions during the tour to deepen your understanding.
