"Groeten uit Den Haag" from Travel and Home

The Hague is famous for and often referred to as being the “city of peace and justice” or the “cultural treasure chest“.  Furthermore is this the city that is home to the Dutch Royal Family.  The Hague has so much to offer for the world traveler.  From stunning architecture, to culinary experiences, history, the old and the new, shopping and so much more.  The Hague is definitely a destination that deserves its place on your travel bucketlist and it is definitely worth a visit.

Although it is not the capital of Holland it is a beautiful and big coastal city in the South Holland province.  Home to the Government and Royal Palaces.

So this coastal city, if you love the beach, offers you Scheveningen Beach which has an amazing pier.  The beach can be reached by tram or bike (approx. a 20 min. bike ride) from the city center.  A lovely beach to spend a few hours.

Furthermore the city is just filled with the most beautiful historical buildings.  Stunning architecture dating back to the 13th century.  The Old City and pedestrian zone is definitely some of the places to check out.
