The Hague


Located in South Holland (Dutch: Zuid-Holland), The Hague (Dutch: 's-Gravenhage or Den Haag) is the third largest city in the Netherlands after Amsterdam and Rotterdam. As of 2006, the city had a population of 475,580.

The Hague is the seat of government, but not the offical capital of the Netherlands, as the Dutch constitution reserves that position for Amsterdam. Nevertheless the both the upper (Dutch: Eerste Kamer), and lower (Dutch: Tweede Kamer) chambers of the Dutch parliament (Dutch: Staten Generaal), the Supreme Court (Dutch: Hoge Raad der Nederlanden), the Council of State (Dutch: Raad van State), all government ministries, all foreign embassies, and the residence of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, are all in The Hague.

As well as the being the center of the Dutch government, The Hague is also an important center for international organizations, particularly those relating to legal matters. International organizations based in the The Hague include the European Police Office (Europol), the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Permanent Court of Arbitration. As a result, the city is sometimes described as the "legal capital of the world", or the "international city of peace and justice".

There are many landmarks and museums in The Hague. Some sites that you will want to visit include:
  • The Escher Museum (Dutch: Escher in het Paleis) - A museum featuring the works of the Dutch artist M. C. Esher.

  • Madurodam - A miniature Dutch city built on a 1:25 scale.

  • Mauritshuis - An art gallery featuring the works of many famous Dutch artists.

  • Panorama Mesdag - A huge panoramic painting painted by the Dutch artist, Hendrik Willem Mesdag, which is housed in a specially built museum.

Product Description:
This is a self-guided step-by-step walk around The Hague.

There are three self-guided walks: The Old Town, Parks and Palaces, and The Peace Palace. Each walk contains detailed maps to make navigation as simple as possible.

The Hague is famous as the seat of the International Court of Justice, is home to the Dutch government, and is packed with embassies and diplomats.But it has another much less well-known side. At its core lies a little lake, surrounded by those buildings which survived the terrible destruction of World War II. You can explore:

The Binnenhof where the original Counts of Holland lived and where the Dutch government now sit.

The mansions and town houses of the wealthy Dutch merchants.

The palaces where the royal family live and work.The secret Catholic churches.

And of course The Hague's memorable museums which are full of many wonderful Dutch masterpieces. Most famously, Vermeer's "The Girl with the Pearl Earring.



"Excerpt from the book "Just across the canal from where you are standing is Mata Hari’s house. It's the one with dark green shutters at number 16, and looks disappointingly respectable as the home of the exotic spy from World War 1. Mata Hari was executed in 1917.”
