Why choose between city and beach, when The Hague offers both!? You can smell the sea from the heart of the historic city centre. Take a tram and within fifteen minutes you’ll find yourself at biggest terrace of the Netherlands, having a drink with your toes in the sand. The Royal city of The Hague offers the best of both worlds.
In The Hague, everything is surprisingly nearby. Gazing straight into the eyes of Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring is just a beautiful, five-minute-walk away from losing all sense of perspective at Escher in Het Paleis. Go on from there to discover Mondrian or Madurodam, where you’ll find the whole of Netherlands at your feet.
The Hague is home to both the Government of The Netherlands and the King, so don’t be surprised when you find our prime minister sitting next to you while you’re having a cappuccino. If you pass by Noordeinde Palace, you can see for yourself if the King is working.
As the city of peace and justice, The Hague unites countries from all across the globe. With international courts, numerous embassies and many important conferences, The Hague is deeply involved in building a safe and just world. With the impressive, world famous Peace Palace at the centre of it all.
