The Princenhuis or Princes' house was the residences of the princes of Orange while in town. Hellevoetsluis was an important military stronghold in the revolt against Spain, so a residence for the army's commander, prince Maurits and Frederik Hendrik, was necessary.
 
The house was built in a beautiful classical dutch style. Nowadays, it is the local town hall.
