The Royal Palace is a famous masterpiece of old architecture. It is guarded by the state law. The castle was built in 1268 and was intended to become a guarding facility for protecting the borders of the Dutch Kingdom. During 5 hundred years the castle changed its status many times and was rebuilt. Initially this was a gothic style building with strict lines. Even today you can notice walls with brickwork that is usual for gothic style. Once the building was finished, the castle had two wings, but in 1534 its structure was changed and two more wings were added. This caused the formation of a wonderful inner square that is surrounded by protective moats on its perimeter. In 1597 the castle was damaged severely by fire and was totally reconstructed several years later by the order of Christian IV. The large Tower was built in the western part of the fort. A Knight Hall appeared as well, and a new church was built instead of the destroyed chapel. During the times of Friedrich IV the castle changed its style from gothic in favor to baroque. Not only outside look, but the inner decoration was changed.
In the beginning of the 19th century the building was severely damaged by fire, so in 1930 the castle was reconstructed once again. The modern look of the castle is the result of work of the architect Viggo Norn. Copyright
