The Hague

Old World Charm

More than 150 global organisations are based in The Hague. The large number of foreign diplomats makes The Hague one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Holland.  It’s more than just politics though – it’s also brimming with culture and history – a must-see for anyone interested in Old World charm.

Cafes and restaurants

You'll also find a variety of restaurants and wine bars to enjoy. Explore The Hague's Indonesian restaurants, for which the city is well known, as well as outdoor cafes, like the Brasserie Dudok and Cafe Restaurant Greve.


Fun in the sun

Being the largest Dutch city on the North Sea, The Hague has two beach resorts. Scheveningen has more than 10 million visitors each year, making it the most popular beach town in Benelux, and is ideal for windsurfing and kite boarding. Kijkduin is a smaller beach that’s less well-known among tourists and ideal for people looking to escape the crowds.

Culture and nightlife

If you want to explore The Hague's nightlife, visit the Plein (the Square) and Prinsegracht for the best places to dance. You’ll also find plenty of nightlife in Buitenhof, another popular square, which features Pathe Buitenof cinema for film fans. 

If lighter escapism is what you’re after, you could try a film at The Omniversum, Europe’s first 360° IMAX cinema, a game of football at ADO Den Haag (the city’s local team who play in the Eredivisie) or shopping in De Passage, Holland’s first covered shopping centre built in the 19th century with plenty of specialty and fashion stores to admire and treat yourself to.
