What is There to do in Den Haag?
The old town around the area known as Plein is very beautiful with a mix of old architecture from Baroque to Renaissance to Medieval. The word plein means square and many of the buildings are built around the main square in this quarter of Den Haag. Elsewhere there are several other neighbourhoods with equally pleasing architecture including the Binnenhof, or castle surrounded by filled in moats. The inner court has held the seat of the Dutch government for eight centuries. If it appeals, you can actually attend sessions of parliament by sitting in the public gallery.
To see some of the country’s most fabulous artworks, try the Mauritshuis where many old masters’ paintings are displayed including Rembrandts and Vermeers.
- You've only got two weeks left to see the replicas of 100 of the 'Terracotta Army' on display at the New Babylon Shopping Centre. Getting to see the real thing is very difficult so this will be the next best thing!
