The Churches in the Hofstad

The two main churches in the city are the gothic Grote Kerk dating back to the 15th century and the Nieuwe Kerk, built in the 17th century when the Grote Kerk became too small. The Nieuwe Kerk was built in the Dutch classical-baroque style.

Back to the Golden Age

Visitng the Mauritshuis is a must. Even if it was just to marvel at the Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer. With its collection of over 800 works of art, it's no surprise that this is one of The Hague's most popular attractions.
At the former municipal museum, now called the Kunstmuseum Den Haag, over 160,000 works of art are on show. The collection includes works by Picasso and Mondrian.
Travelling to the Hofstad with children? Visit the Escher in Het Paleis, a permanent exhibition in the former winter palace of Queen Emma of the Netherlands. Young and old will marvel at the optical illusion paintings by M.C. Escher.

A day at the beach

The city is filled with historical heritage. At Scheveningen and Kijkduin, you can spend a lovely day out at the beach. Hotel Novotel Den Haag World Forum is near the city centre and the beach at Scheveningen.
Scheveningen pier is a vibrant place with a Ferris wheel, a zipline and many cafés. Pick up some souvenirs on the Scheveningen boulevard. Sea Life is an excellent attraction for children and is close to Hotel ibis Styles Den Haag Scheveningen. The location is also ideal if you plan to visit the casino in Scheveningen or catch a show at the Circustheater. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the fishermen and take a boat tour at the port of Scheveningen.

The Hofkwartier is also a popular shopping place, with charming boutiques and shops selling vintage clothing and antiques. De Haagse Passage is the oldest remaining shopping centre in the Netherlands and one of Europe's most beautiful shopping arcades.
