The Hague; the city by the sea

The Hague – city by the sea

The unique combination of city and sea offers the visitor a wide variety of options. This is why The Hague is a popular city break destination. The cosy historic city centre has a royal feel to it. It won’t be the first time you’ll run into a royal family member in one of the shops. And it only takes 15 minutes by tram to kick of your shoes and feel the sand underneath your feet. The 11 km sandy beach is wide and clean. You can choose to go to Scheveningen, where you can surf, stand-up-paddle of kite surf. Or maybe you want to relax in one of the beach bars. Even when you’re up for thrills Scheveningen is the place to go to. The tower on the famous Pier has a bungee jump attraction and if you like more adventure you can zip-line your way back to the boulevard again. Are you more fan of easy rides, then take a spin in the ferris wheel. Scheveningen is also known for it’s nightlife. Holland Casino, the Circustheatre where big shows like Anastasia is presented, Pathé cinema, entertainment concept Crazy Piano’s and the to be opened in 2020 Hard Rock Café makes Scheveningen to best place for ‘A Night Out at sea’. Are you more into a calmer vibe, then Kijkduin fits you better than Scheveningen. Kijkduin beach is wide and clean as well, but with it’s small centre and lovely boulevard this beach resort is more modest. You can easily stroll through the dunes and even book a night or two in one of the cute beach houses. Here you sleep on the beach, what an experience.

Visit The Hague and let it embrace you. Experience how the combination of city life and beach life, makes your city break one that will become a memory you’ll never forget. Check denhaag.com for all upcoming festivals and events.
