    The Royal lake (de Hofvijver), also known as 'the Pond' with the houses of Parliament.
    The Castle of Floris IV was built on a dune beside this lake so that there was always a supply of fresh water. Canals were dug around the 'Binnenhof' for protection. Most of the canals were filled in but the lake remains and is fed by the river de Beek.

    Pages'House, built between 1618 and 1628, is one of the few remaining houses with a 'stepped gable' in this part of the city.
    It takes it name from the time the building was a boarding school for future squires. (Page means squire)

    The place in the Neterlands to see musicals.
    The Phantom of the opera, miss saigon and Elisabeth were succesfull. We saw Teh phantom and Miss Saigon. It was a perfect combination of special effects and performance.

    Facade of the Pageshuis. A step-roofed house dating back to the 17th century (1618), very rare in the centre of The Hague.

  • A little house

    by sabsi Updated Jan 7, 2004

    I found this little house in The Hague on queens night. In the old days people had to pay taxes according to the width of their house. That's why a lot of houses were built with very narrow fronts.

    Visit De Resident, the new modern centre that is being built right next to the central station.
    This area will have offices, appartment buildings, shops, restaurants, and more.
