The Binnenhof is a complex of buildings in The Hague that has been the meeting place of the States-General, the parliament of the Netherlands, since 1446, and has been the centre of Dutch politics for many centuries. Built mostly in the 13th century, the complex originally functioned as residence of the counts of Holland.

The new building for the Second Chamber of the States-General adjoins the "Binnenhof" complex in the Hague, that has grown since mediaeval times. As in British parliament, discussions in this assembly, which corresponds to a lower chamber, must go through the speaker: he is the only person who is addressed directly, and the third person must be used when responding to another member’s statement.
