Scenic The Hague, The Hague
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.

VIDEO of my visit:
Wall of former monastery at The Hague, demolished in the 16th century (on the left), and modern facade of the Algemene Rekenkamer, the Netherlands Court of Audit.
Facade of the Pageshuis. A step-roofed house dating back to the 17th century (1618), very rare in the centre of The Hague.
Facade of the Hoge Raad (Supreme Court of the Netherlands). From 1819 to 1982, this used to be the building of the Royal Library.
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.
A window of the 'CandyBox', in it you see another building reflected, called 'The golden head'.

In the distance you see the church. The tower was build in 1420.
