The Royal Stables in The Hague is home to several carriages of the Royal Family, such as the Golden and Glass Carriages. It also houses the horses that pull the carriages.

The Royal Stables are not normally open to the public, except during the summer opening.

A visit to Palace Noordeinde, the Palace Garden and the Royal Stables should not be missed during a day in The Hague!

The Royal Stable Department is part of the Civil Household of the Royal Household Service. The Stable Master is in charge of the daily management of the Stable Department. He is responsible for the Royal procession during Prince's Day and on other occasions. The Royal Stable Department was established by King William I in 1815. In 1878, the current accommodation on the Hogewal in The Hague was put into use. Among other things, the Royal Stable Department houses the galley room. These are used on ceremonial occasions. For daily work, the horses are harnessed with the so-called service vehicles.

Palace Noordeinde and Palace Garden

Palace Noordeinde is the working palace of King Willem-Alexander. The palace is the centre of many important events in the life of the Royal Family. Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard and Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien said 'I do' to each other here. Such a magnificent palace, of course, requires a royal garden.

The Palace Garden is hidden between Noordeinde Palace, the Royal Stables and the Royal Archives. Here you can unwind in an oasis of peace, nature and art, right in the centre of The Hague. Besides the Royal Stables, the Noordeinde Palace and the Palace Gardens are definitely worth a visit!
