Koningsplein connects the streets Prins Hendrikstraat and Weimarstraat, both of which are beautiful streets filled with lots of independent little shops, bars, restaurants and fancy yoga studios. All around Koningsplein are houses built in the neo-renaissance style typical for the area, beautifully maintained with their front doors in bright colours. Koningsplein certainly offers you lots of “Kodak moments”. The square has a playground for kids, many park benches to rest on, and also joins up with a well-established pub in The Hague, Sint Joris en de Draeck. In short: Koningsplein has something to offer for the entire family or, if you’re visiting on your own, just wander across it and marvel at another hidden gem in The Hague!
The Hague has many beautiful squares: not all of which you would discover without knowing about them. Koningsplein (“the King’s square” in English) is one of my favourites. With its oval shape, central location and beautiful architecture, it’s a place I often take a detour to, just to marvel at it on my way to work. It is located a bit to the west of downtown The Hague, between the buzzing districts Zeeheldenkwartier and Regentessekwartier.
