The Hague (Dutch: Den Haag or 's-Gravenhage) is located in the province of South Holland in the Netherlands. It is the seat of the Dutch government, and the residence of the Queen, although Amsterdam is officially the capital city. The municipality has about 440,000 inhabitants, the urban area about 650, 000.

The Hague

Get in

Although the Dutch are always complaining about it, the Dutch train system can be very efficient, and Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht are all within an hour's distance. The Hague is also a stop of the somewhat expensive Thalys train service running between Paris and Amsterdam.

The Hague

Get around

The Hague has a quite efficient tram and bus system, including an underground tram. From the Central Station and the Holland Spoor Station the entire city can be reached with between zero and two transfers; major attractions do not require transfers.

The Hague

Eat

All major fast food chains are present, also The Hague has quite a respectable number of restaurants (in all price ranges) and grand cafe's; one of which "Dudok" is across the Binnenhof and is quite popular with both politicians and the "ordinary" public out shopping.

Like the rest of the Netherlands The Hague isn't too tough for vegetarians. Excellent falafel can be found at the Falafel Palace, where the vegetables and the sauces are to be added by yourself.
