The Hague Sights

The Hague's center is crammed with the best the city has to offer in terms of art, history, and architecture. An exploration of a relatively small area will take you to the Binnenhof, home to the famous Ridderzaal or along the leafy Lange Voorhout for a stroll through what in the 19th century was the place to see and be seen. Venture a little farther afield and you’ll come upon the Gemeentemuseum

Den Haag, where works by Vermeer and other masters usually hanging in the Mauritshuis are on view.
