The one which stands out is the Gothic building, the Ridderzaal or the Knight’s Hall, here is where we will find the World Peace Flame, an eternal burning flame, just be sure not to blow it out! 

To end the tour we will take a look at Grote Kerk, a landmark Protestant church located right in the heart of the city. It is used for a succession of events which take place here and several other historical events. Its two large stained-glass windows make it stand out along with the stork at its highest point, the traditional symbol of the city of The Hague.
