It’s a lot of fun to take a poke around Google maps and look at the street view. Whether you’re checking out your ex-girlfriend’s house or nosing around to see what your old fraternity managed to do with all that money they got in the fundraising drive, it’s pretty cool to just take a peek at different places.
Unless that place is the White House. Or the entire northern half of Pakistan. Or certain sensitive sights scattered around the world (looking at you, Ramstein Air Base). Then Google’s going to have some bad news for you…access denied.
Take a look at these other sites that may or may not make any sense for being designated as off-limits to internet map snoopers.
The Royal Stables
This one might not seem like a highly sensitive location, but as the Dutch royal family and members of the royal house still actually run the show in the Netherlands, they're pretty important people. The Royal Stables might have started out as the place where the horses grab a snack and take a nap, but it's actually now charged with all transportation needs for the ruling family. Therefore... keep out, even through your computer screen.
