    KIJKDUIN

    by RoyJava Written May 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    kijkduin-beach-resort

    When you've got a little headache from trying to reach Scheveningen you could head for Kijkduin, a more quiet seaside resort. It's about 20 minutes from The Hague and a wonderful place to experience in the sunshine. Especially for kids there is a lot to do in springtime, including the "Circus Boulevard", with clowns.

    When going for a shop you will not be disappointed, and walking over the small boulevard of Kijkduin along the many restaurants and terraces, it is a pleasure to have a great view over the North Sea. It's located on a dune which you can explore, too. You can rent a bicycle at Biesieklette (Biesieklette (31) (0)70 394 22 11).

    By Bus: 4, 23 or 26 to Kijkduin from Central Station. By car the easiest way to reach Kijkduin is by taking the A4 motorway through the South of The Hague (Den Haag-Zuid).

    mill-molenwijk-thehague

    Yes, you may watch the truly Dutch characteristic feature, the mill and, not that far from the center! Located right in the district of the Molenwijkers (Mill-people) in Molenwijk ... (see link for more)

    (another The Hague's Mill is located at Boekweitkamp, you could reach by car, driving from Juliana Van Stolberglaan or Schenkkade for about 5 minutes, and see the Korenear, Loosduinen)

    Westland - Glass-houses All Over

    glass-houses-westland-thehague

    If you want to head for Hoek Van Holland along the North Sea (by car!) there is a wonderful way which leads you to the place. Find the road-sign "Hoek van Holland" and, you'll pass the West-land. The Westland municipality covers almost 8 km Northsea coast.

    This area got its second name "Glazen Region" (Area of Glass), because the inland is really famous for large glass houses where agriculture and horticulture have always been important (sometimes "green-houses" named). Already in 14th century there were products exported to England and, flowers and vegetables are exported all over the world.

    Take a virtual look in the Hague with real live images of webcams around and in the city. Some live streaming and some with frequent fresh images. Streetcams and Beachcams give you a good impression ot the weather, site and places in The Hague.

    The Hague Links refer to common The Hague websites with lots of information and toerist attractions.

    At the Molenweg there is a cornmill. Its name is: The 4 winds. Its belonged to the familie Polanen, but in 1404 the mill came into the hands of the Lords from Nassau (not by a fight but by marriage).
    They rented it as a landlord. Till the 20th century it went fine with the mill. Severall owners came and went. But in the 20th century the mill was not in a good shape.

    The Old Church (Oude Kerk) in Delft
    This church is the final resting place of the famous Dutch ruler Viljem von Oranje, whose mausoleum was being renewed during our visit.

    The canals in Delft are great to walk around. With beautiful autumn colours and sunshine above it was even nicer for us when we were there with friends in September 1998.
