  • Cupcakechic: The best pastry in Holland

    by markymarkder Written Dec 25, 2013
    rose cupcakes

    A cute little shop where they actually still bake fresh pastry in front of you and the staff is really friendly! It's one of the very few bakeries that I encountered in Holland that bake from scratch and not just bake-off.

    What to buy: Cupcakes & macarons, also try the red velvet cheese cake

    What to pay: around 3,- per cupcake

    Central Shopping District

    by nicolaitan Written Nov 17, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    The central shopping area in The Hague is the largest downtown shopping area in The Netherlands with over 250 stores - department stores, international brands, and locally owned vendors interspersed with restaurants and several theaters. The district attracts over 60000 visitors a week to pedestrianized streets and several covered arcades. As anticipated in an international city, the range of offerings is wide. And the shoppers resemble little less than a United Nations.

    That said, the offerings in the unique local boutiques and shoe stores were less adventurous than encountered in other cities ( which did not stop my beloved Proserpina from dropping Eu50 on a multicolored blouse which in all honesty she does continue to wear ). Similarly the international offerings were nothing unique. Worth a walk, not worth a detour.

    Various: The Positively Palatial Passage

    by johngayton Written Oct 11, 2013
    2 more images

    De Passage in Den Haag is the Netherlands oldest shopping mall and is listed as a UNESCO monument. It was a built in the city centre as a covered shopping street in 1885, connecting the Buitenhof and Spuistraat with a further arm added in 1929 to the Hofweg. The grandiose 4 storey construction was intended to house the most exclusive shops in the city as well as a 60 room hotel.

    A major renovation project was begun in 2003, which is in its final stages now in 2013, and once again the Passage is home to the city's elite retailers, especially designer fashion and accessories. The hotel too has been modernised and is now the 106 bedroom, 4 star, Novotel.

    Shopping in De Passage

    by MATIM Written Feb 7, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shopping in De Passage, its history going back more than 115 years to make it the Netherlands' oldest shopping centre, is an experience itself. The glass-roofed mall is home to many specialist shops with ultramodern appeal. With its splendid achitecture, the experience of being in De Passage is unlike anything you'll find in modern shopping centres. A day of shopping in The Hague just isn't complete without a visit to De Passage.

    If you do like honey there is a wonderful small place where you can buy one of the finest and utmost fresh honey.

    Pay a visit to the Japanese Garden of Clingendael and just walk into the garden via the head promenade. At the left side you will find a small house with a very friendly beekeeper and his honey bees.

    What to buy: He knows all about his honey bees and, you may ask any question. He just returned from Japan (in September 2007) where he joined a congress about ... bees and Japanese flowers!

    You can buy some really delicious honey of different seasons (I do love the "Balsemien" honey of the autumns).

    Oow, I have to mention he is there on Saturday and Sunday (day time), and when lucky you may find him some other mornings ...

    What to pay: ... honey for about 3.50 Euro per pot !

    De Passage: The oldest Dutch Shopping Centre

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Sep 18, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    De Passage - Den Haag
    2 more images

    De Passage is the oldest shopping located between the Spuistraat, Hofweg and the Buitenhof. Parking at Lange Voorhout, City Hall or Plein.

    The Dutch poet Gerrit Achterberg wrote this poem:

    PASSAGE

    Den Haag, stad, boordevol Bordewijk
    en van Couperus overal een vleug
    op Scheveningen aan, de villawijk
    die kwijnt en zich Eline Vere heugt.

    Maar in de binnenstad staan ze te kijk,
    deurwaardershuizen met de harde deugd
    van Kattadreuffe die zijn doel bereikt.
    Ik drink twee werelden, in ene teug.

    Den Haag, je tikt er tegen en het zingt.
    In de passage krijgt de klank een hoog
    weergalmen en omlaag een fluistering
    tussen de voeten over het graniet;
    rode hartkamer die in elleboog
    met drie uitmondingen de stad geniet.

    What to buy: Luxery goods

    Empire: The best 2nd hand vnyl shop

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Sep 18, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Empire records - Den Haag

    Empire -formerly known as Vinyl Solution- is great shop for looking for 2nd hand vinyl records. True, the shop also had CD's and DVD and a great collection of dolls, but going through the vinyl collection was a great experience. Found some flexies, comedy, soundFX and left the documentary for the next time. There's a shelf with low priced Jukebox 45ers. This is just a shop where you have to go through everything on display. Nicely alphabetically ordered and good service by the shop keeper Walter Herman .

    What to buy: Just that record what you were looking for all those years.

    What to pay: 45 from Euro 2
    Albums around Euro 5 and higher,
