The Hague is a cosmopolitan city, and still remains liveable and personal. Everything in the entire city is barely more than a stone’s throw away. Including the seaside. Step on a tram in the historic city centre and within fifteen minutes you’ll find yourself on The Hague’s eleven-kilometre long beach. The ideal place to take a break from life’s hustle and bustle and to find the inspiration for new ideas.
Since time immemorial, The Hague has been an open city, with regal allure. The royal family lives and works here. And it’s the seat of the Dutch government, where vitally important decisions affecting the future of the country are taken every day. Which is why so many companies, students, diplomats and non-profit organisations choose to come to The Hague. Because here, you can expand your network, influence what goes on around you, and make a difference in the world.
And The Hague offers unexpected extras. Only in The Hague can you cross paths with the king, and only here does the prime minister cycle to work, like anyone else. Be ready for a place where extraordinary encounters are a daily occurrence.
WELCOME TO THE HAGUE!
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.
