The Hague forest used to be the hunting place of the Binnenhof castle. Now it is a nice open park, right north of the city centre. Here you will also find the royal residence, the Huis ten Bosch, dating from the early 17th century.Picture: the entrance at night.
There's a travelogue with much more information on the palace in my Den Helder page.
Huis Ten Bosch is the city residence of the royal family. It lies north of the city. Alas, it can not be visited!!
Den Haag was the third town outside Amsterdam we had seen that day. We needed some ideas on where to go next. The sign was very helpful, but in the end we chose Rotterdam..
Den Haag is best known as the home of various international courts and institutions. Maybe you'll run into this guy??
The Hague has many hofjes or almshouses. They are peaceful spots in a hectic city. For instance, the Hofje van Nieuwkoop.
On the Church Square you will find the old town hall. On the picture you can see a building designed by Berlage. It is presently a book store.
