Kneuterdijk Palace: Overall view, showing corner entrance
Built for Count Johan Hendrik van Wassenaar-Obdam. Later became a royal palace. Until his coronation in 1840, King Willem II resided here with his wife Anna Pavlovna (of the House of Romanov). Their grandson crown prince William used the palace from 1858 till his death in 1879. In the 1930s the place was occasionally used by Princess Juliana. It currently houses the Dutch Council of State. The design cuts across the corner, so as to accommodate in the middle an impressive entrance, surmounted by a dome.
