    De Grote Kerk

    Favorite thing: The Grote Kerk [Big Church] (also known as the St. Jacobskerk [St. Jacob's Church]) is one of the oldest buildings in The Hague and is inextricably interwoven into the city’s history.
    Grote of Sint-Jacobskerk (English: Great, or St. James church) is a landmark Protestant church in The Hague. The building is located on the Torenstraat, named for its high tower. Together with the Binnenhof, it is one of the oldest buildings in the Hague.
    The church's six-sided tower is one of the tallest in the Netherlands. There are 34 panels with shields and names of knights of the golden fleece.

    Upside Down

    funny-statue-thehague

    Favorite thing: Nope,... don't think you are looking at a wrong picture, or a wrongly placed statue.
    This is a r t, baby!

    A bit of contortionist, a bit of a clown, and you'll have a carnival creature, looking at you upside down. Artful The Hague just want to give artists the opportunity to show their favourite art-work. This funny one is right in front of the huge beehive,... named >>>

    Bijenkorf

    It's The Hague's number one shopping mall, you cannot miss him. The colorful statue and some other can be seen on a special guiding tour, created by
    Rondleidingen - The Hague

    Fondest memory: Maybe not my best memory, when passing this funny one. For sure a beloved memory, because of the lovely center in my home town The Hague ... where the multi-cultural beauties of humans and art are mixed up with royal presence, best pop artists, and government politics ... oh my oh my!

    skyline-thehague

    Favorite thing: Crazy about skylines, animated by VT friend VincentJJ, this one includes the modern new buildings and the old Hollands Spoor station where the international trains pass by. In future times I'll add each of these modern buildings ...

    Skyline VT Friend VincentJJ

    Fondest memory: When visiting Megastore, for your mega-shopping, you may park on the roof-terrace parking place. From there you can see this splendid The Hague mega-view and, that remarkable skyline connecting old and new ...

    Statue of Queen Wilhelmina

    Wilhelmina

    Favorite thing: Just across the palace Noordeinde is a giant tree and somewhat to the left of it is this statue of Wilhelmina.
    Written in the stone behind the statue is the title of a book she wrote: Lonely yet not alone.
    I think she was a tragic queen, having had little of a childhood and being a queen at the early age of 18.

    Favorite thing: If you like architecture, The Hague is a must. There are old buildings from the Middle ages, such as the Hall of Knights, palaces from the 17th century, and structures built by the architects of the famous Amsterdam school of architecture. Even now, new interesting buildings are being created.

    Fondest memory: On this picture you can see the Haags Gemeentemuseum, built by Berlage. Picture taken May 2002

    Favorite thing: Next to our tram stop stood this little statue, no clue who or what it is.
    But it looks quite nice covered in snow.
