1) you can walk literally on the lawn of the prime minister. He can also be seen riding his bike to work on occasion.
2) try to see if you can see one of the courts. It might be a privilege we only got as students, I'm not sure.
3) because the Netherlands once owned territory in the east indies, they have really good indo-Chinese food. Definitely check out Chinatown! over 6 years ago
1) Go shopping at de Denneweg and have lunch at Maxime www.restaurantmaxime.nl
2) If it is good weather, go to Scheveningen and have a drink at the Carlton Beach Club.
3) If it is bad weather go to the Omniversum and watch the movie "born to be wild". www.omniversum.nl over 6 years ago
1) The Binnenhof, home to the Dutch parliament since the 16th century (plus a rest stop at the Winter Palace of Queen Mother Emma, now home to the mind-bending works by M.C. Escher)
2) Scheveningen, the Hague’s seafront-resort only 15 minutes away from city center--make sure you have a drink at the grand Kurhaus hotel, Scheveningen’s most dominant structure.
3) The Municipal Museum, or Gemeentemuseum Den Haag--until mid-2014, it houses the best of Dutch and Flemish art since the 1600s, has a breathtaking collection of Mondrian, and is housed in a really cool building that by itself is worth a visit. Plus, the Municipal Museum is close to an excellent dinner spot: Frederik Hendriklaan, a street full of stores, restaurants, and bars. I loved Toko Sawa, a family-owned Indonesian restaurant with very delicious food.
Here's a relaxing day itinerary for the Hague: http://transplantedtatar.wordpress.com/2012/12/18/strolling-in-the-hague/ almost 6 years ago
Delft is a quick and pleasant ride on the No.1 tram from the centre of The Hague. It's a smaller, quieter, and less touristy version of Amsterdam. Beautiful canals, cobbled streets and superb examples of old Dutch architecture. And the home of Vermeer. over 5 years ago
