The Hague is a vibrant city on the coast of the Netherlands and is a historical but also modern place with a lot of museums. The Mauritshuis is famous for its old masters such as Vermeer and Rembrandt. And the beautiful Municipal Museum (Gemeente Museum), built by Berlage, has Mondriaan’s largest collection in the world. A visit to the Escher museum is also a must. The Dutch parliament has long been based in The Hague and is centred around the parliamentary buildings near the Binnenhof. The Noordeinde Palace fulfils an important function in receptions by the Royal Family and Huis ten Bosch is the palace of the royal family. With the Peace Palace as its centre, The Hague is also the international city of peace and justice.
Dutch most famous seaside resort Scheveningen (where the North Sea Beach Rugby event is at The Hague Beach Stadium) has an abundance of attractions and beach pavilions. Take a stroll along the most beautiful boulevard Netherlands, go out for dinner in the harbor of Scheveningen or enjoy a sunset.
Beach life and city life go together in The Hague! The Hague’s bustling downtown area has far more to offer than thethe earlier mentioned landmarks Boutiques, cafes, concert and dance venues, galleries, flagship stores and restaurants offer something to everyone who loves culture, shopping and nightlife.
The Hague is great for shopping. The shopping centre around the Spuistraat and Grote Marktstraat is open seven days a week and is very popular. Just a short distance away from this well-trodden part of the city centre and its recognisable fashion brands lies an unexpected side to The Hague: the old, atmospheric Hofkwartier houses original, trendy shops.
Known in The Hague is also the theme park Madurodam, a city full of miniatures and attractions, so you can learn where the Netherlands is great at.
The Hague has always been closely connected with the former Dutch East Indies, today’s Indonesia. A good Indonesian restaurant is Keraton Damia (Groot Hertoginnenlaan 57, The Hague). But of course there are also other delicious cuisines such as the Japanese restaurant Set Genki (Schoolstraat 4, The Hague). And there are two restaurants with a Michelin star. Restaurant Calla’s (Laan van Roos and Doorn 51a) and restaurant Niven (Delftweg 58a Rijswijk) which has a Michelin star for 11 years.
