The Hague and Scheveningen beach

Den Haag (The Hague) is the capital city of the province of South Holland in the Netherlands. With a population of 500,000 inhabitants and more than one million inhabitants including the suburbs, it is the third largest city of the Netherlands, after Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The Hague is located in the west of the Netherlands.

The Hague is the seat of the Dutch government and parliament, the Supreme Court, and the Council of State, but the city is not the capital of the Netherlands which constitutionally is Amsterdam. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands lives at Huis ten Bosch and works at Noordeinde Palace in The Hague. Most foreign embassies in the Netherlands and 150 international organisations are located in the city, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, which makes The Hague one of the major cities hosting the United Nations, along with New York, Vienna and Geneva.


Scheveningen beach is even more beautiful in summer. Scheveningen has many exciting beach pavilions where you can lounge, eat, drink in the evening.
