Image library

The image library contains 750,000 photographs of historic buildings and monuments, archaeological sites and landscapes, and building plans. Photographs of movable heritage items will also be added in the future.

The photographs in the image library are not subject to copyright when used for non-commercial purposes. They may be used for a small fee, in either digital or printed form. Unfortunately, the image library is not yet available in English.

The photographs in the image library have been published under the Creative Commons ‘Attribution–ShareAlike’ licence, CC-BY-SA.

The image library is accessible only in Dutch, and is searchable mainly by place name. If the search fails, you may send your search request to, and our staff will investigate whether we have the photographs you require.
