A beautiful house

This house you can find on the laan van Meerdervoort. The longest road in the Hague that actually cuts the city in 2. When you walk along this road, you can see how architecture changes from the late 19th century to middle of the 20th. Almost at the beginning of the street you can find this house. One of my favorites in the city.

Jantje

Jantje was a son of Count Floris the V, after his father died Jantje (little Jan) became a count himeslf in 1296, at the age of 13, and died 2 years later, because of the pressure and strees that was put on him by family and enemies. There's some very famous children's song about him, but unfortunately my Dutch is still far away from being perfect and I can't translate it!

Pagehuis

The Pagehuis is a building in manneristic style from between 1618 and 1628, while it was enlarged at the end of the 17th century to one of its sides. It is one of a few survivors of what once were many houses with a stepped gable in this part of the city. The name Pagehuis refers to the time when the building was a boarding-school for future squires (page means squire) from 1748 till 1876. From 1876 till 1992 used by the red cross. But it originally was build for the town's guncaster who had his workshop in the nearby Kloosterkerk's choir.

Location: Lange Voorhout

Modern architecture

If you're interested in this sort of thing, there's a whole new neighbourhood with modern architecture. Even I think it's quite nice, although I'm usually not crazy about modern architecture. Only the location is completely wrong. Big buildings like these just don't belong so close to a historic city centre, and these buildings do spoil a few once very nice views in the centre. But I guess we will have to get used to it.

The Hague forest used to be the hunting place of the Binnenhof castle. Now it is a nice open park, right north of the city centre. Here you will also find the royal residence, the Huis ten Bosch, dating from the early 17th century.Picture: the entrance at night.

There's a travelogue with much more information on the palace in my Den Helder page.

Where to Next

Den Haag was the third town outside Amsterdam we had seen that day. We needed some ideas on where to go next. The sign was very helpful, but in the end we chose Rotterdam..

The Hague has many hofjes or almshouses. They are peaceful spots in a hectic city. For instance, the Hofje van Nieuwkoop.
