Want to get a real feel of The Hague? Check out the list below and explore the city as a local!
Inner Court (Binnenhof)
Get lost in the beautiful architecture of these classical buildings. Home to some of the most important events in the country’s history, it’s is a must-see when visiting The Hague. Thought that this place was only important a few hundred years ago? Wrong! 😉 The prime minister and the parliament are working from here every day. Make sure you do a guided tour to explore every part of the building’s interesting history.
Court Pond (Hofvijver)
Continue your way via the Court Pond, an artificial lake built in the late 13th century. Don’t forget to get your camera out for a beautiful shot of Binnenhof’s skyline.
This is one of the three royal palaces owned by ‘De Oranjes’, where several royal weddings took place and Queen Juliana was born. As King Willem-Alexander currently works from here, it’s not possible to visit the palace. Take some time to marvel at its beautiful exterior and go for a walk in Noordeinde, one of the city’s most elegant shopping streets.
Bakery Het Bakkertje
Did all that history make you thirsty? This cute little bakery has the best sandwiches, fresh juices and cheap (but delicious) coffees to go.
The Prinsestraat is the most iconic shopping street of The Hague. It’s a great stop to get some unique designer clothes, visit the art galleries or have a delicious lunch in one of the many restaurants. If you’re visiting on a sunny day, you might want to have a picnic in the palace garden — it’s a great way to spend a sunny day!
