Visit The Hague

The Hague has certainly earned its reputation as the Netherlands’ royal city by the sea, with sprawling palaces, coastal views, and a rich history all to be discovered.

As the seat of the country’s parliament and residence of the Dutch royal family, exploring The Hague reveals a wealth of historic monuments, quaint neighbourhoods and hip hangouts. The Hague (or Den Haag in Dutch) also offers both luxury and a laidback attitude: the city has some of the most stunning palaces and museums, but its location on the coast makes it a haven for beach bums and people seeking a retreat that's perfect for taking some time out from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

Whether you’re getting dressed up for a night out at one of the Netherlands’ swankiest spots or looking to let your hair down, spending time in The Hague offers you a Dutch experience unlike any other.
