Historic and Humble in The Hague Photo Essay

The Hague was one of our favorite places in the Netherlands.  The architecture was amazing, the people were friendly and the Dutch food was of course out of this world!  We have visited Amsterdam and Eindhoven in the past and had heard great things about The Hague so we included it in our Netherlands Tour.  And we are so glad we did!  This city is small but stunning and well worth a visit if you are every in Holland.  We stayed at one of our favorite hotel brands, Movenpick Den Haag, which was in the perfect location for us to get to and from the city.  Walking around this city is definitely the best way to see everything she has to offer, especially in good weather.

    I am born in Den Haag or in ‘s-Gravenhage, which are two different names for the same city.
    It is a city with 500.000 people living there and she has more nice places than you have shown.
    Please ad more daily life photos in your next visits.
    Thank you.

      Yes, it was a beautiful city. It would be very hard to get a photo of every wonderful place there, otherwise the photo post would be very very long 🙂
