About The Hague, the Netherlands

Internationally, The Hague is widely recognised as the city of peace and justice, with the Peace Palace, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Court all located in the centre of the city.

However, the true history of The Hague starts in the Middle Ages. The past comes to life as you stroll along the alleys and interconnecting canals, past stately mansions and through quiet courts. Unlike most Dutch cities situated at the junction of roads and waterways, The Hague did not arise as a trade centre.

​Our beautiful city has many historical buildings and many fine museums. The Binnenhof is a 13th century hunting lodge established for the Counts of Holland that is the heart of The Netherland’s political life and is the official seat of government. The Knight’s Hall, or Ridderzaal is located within the Binnenhof and a guided tour is highly recommended. The nearby 17th century building known as the Mauritshuis – formerly a palace and now a museum - houses a collection of some of the world’s finest paintings from artists such as Vermeer, Hals and Rembrandt.


The Kunstmuseum (art museum) has an extensive collection of modern and applied arts as well as fashion and music.
