To international tourists, The Hague is probably best known as the institutional capital of The Netherlands, home to the International Court of Justice, to the local royals and the Dutch Parliament alongside many other governmental bodies. However, locals know that this elegant city located less than an hour of Amsterdam is much more than that.
Behind the solemnity of its splendid architecture, elegant avenues and lush parks, Den Haag hides an effervescent side that makes it a destination for everyone. A day in The Hague can look like a day at the beach, an art and culture dive and a foodie paradise, all within the same 24 hours!
