Often a host to policy talks, legal seminars, and other events, Vredespaleis serves as the permanent home to the United Nations' International Court of Justice. The ornate building, topped by a tower, represents the culmination of international efforts at the turn of the 20th century to create an international forum to avoid war and conflict. Stop by the visitor center for information about the court and its daily workings or to learn more about the building and grounds themselves. Though not open to the public, you can access the institution by taking a guided tour and exploring the intricately decorated interior, replete with busts of famous figures, domed ceilings, and vaulted hallways. Be sure to check the website to see available tour times.

A very significant historic building is definitely something everyone should go see. While you aren’t allowed in the building or the garden the reception area is full of history in its own mini tour. They provide head sets and pointers so you can walk through the building at your own pace and listen to the audio for different aspects of the building and learn quite a bit about both its past and how its being used present day.
Truly captures peace. Be sure to make a stop to see this, even if you just intend to look at the exterior. There is a free information center which has a lot to see and hear. The exterior has a lot of symbolic art, including a peace flame, surrounded by stones of all countries. Exploring inside requires a reservation, which I imagine is very worth it.
