Things to do in The Hague

Dutch version

Doing fun things in The Hague is easy with it being both a historical city and a modern city. Both an abundance of art galleries and the world famous jazz festival, North Sea Jazz.

The Hague is a stately city with many boulevards and parks, many embassies, many museums and a lively nightlife.

The city center is largely concentrated around the Hofvijver (Court Pond) and the Binnenhof (Inner Court) where the Dutch parliament holds its meetings. Another welcome distraction in the city is of course Scheveningen Beach where over 10 million tourists annually come to enjoy the sunshine. What more proof do you need to put The Hague in your itinerary?
