The Hague is the international city of peace and justice and the third largest city in the Netherlands. It is also the official seat of the Crown and government, home to hundreds of international organisations and multinationals and one of the world’s top three UN cities.
City by the sea
Like no other city in the Netherlands, The Hague offers a unique combination of city life and beach life. The city’s two seaside resorts – Scheveningen and Kijkduin – both boast lovely wide sandy beaches that attract locals and tourists alike. Getting to the historic city centre only takes you 10 to 15 minutes.
The Hague is a royal city with a high feel-good factor. After all, you might spontaneously encounter members of the Royal Family on the street or in one of ‘their’ stores. You’ll also stumble upon the House of Orange; the many historical monuments, the presence of residential and working palaces, royal thoroughfares and horse-drawn coaches.
Sights & museums
With the most historic sites per square meter in the Netherlands, The Hague oozes culture and history. Visit The Hague monuments such as the Binnenhof, Noordeinde Palace, and the Peace Palace. Discover the largest painting in the Netherlands: Panorama Mesdag. Admire the exquisite works of Rembrandt, Vermeer and Mondrian at the Mauritshuis and Gemeentemuseum.
