The Binnenhof is a Gothic castle/ complex of buildings in the city center of Den Haag. It was built in the 13th century, and is the oldest House of Parliament that’s still in use in the world (from Wikipedia link above).

The exit brings you right to the Mauritshuis (building on the right).
The Mauritshuis is an art museum that houses mostly Dutch Golden Age paintings (including ones by Vermeer, Rembrandt, Rubens, Hals, Holbein, and Fabritius).
