Wassenaar Things to Do
The Waalsdorpervlakte is an open place in the dune area "Meijendel" (near The Hague and Wassenaar), where over 250 members of the Dutch resistance were killed by the Germans during World War II. It is also the site of top Nazi collaborator Anton Mussert's execution in 1946, a year after his arrest in The Hague on May 7, 1945. It is regarded one of the main locations where on 4 May "Remembrance of the Dead", the Dutch yearly commemoration of victims of World War II and other victims of war, is being held.
Near the monument an information sign is posted. In the nearby dunes, which are not accessable for public, also the wooden 'fusilladekruis' remains, this is the location where many bodies were found of shot resistance members.Related to:

Wonderful smell as soon you walk into this chocolate heaven,I swear I put on 10 ounces just looking and smelling the 100s of differnt chocs available.They were delicious,MMMMMMmmmmmm.
What to buy: Er...Chocolates...
Favorite thing: If you do stay in this little get away they have to offer or you are else where in the town...realize it fast that things close down early. I mean 5 pm early....so if you are going to by food to cook , beer , cigarettes, I mean anything get it done early in the day because there is not really aanything in this town.
This is coming from a kid who grew up 20 min drive from NYC the city that never sleeps.
Fondest memory: The nice long bike rides we had buzzing around, I had known nothing about Dutch life or what to expect and in the back of my mind I had a strong feeling that Amsterdam had nothing to do with what goes on in the Dutch world, or maybe Amsterdam was the spectrum that I did'nt want to believe.
Also the train ride down to Den Haag was very nice, cause I got to see alot of the old windmills, plus I realized that this must be the flattist country in the world...and it might be possible to take a nice warm nap on the grass being that every where I looked seemed to look like a golf course.Related to:
