    • The Hague on weekends

      by ramot418 Online Now Apr 22, 2016 at 2:05 AM

      I was originally planning to go the Hague on Friday, May 6th, as I prefer going to tourist sites on weekdays. However, I just realized that the Alkmaar Cheese Market is only on Fridays and would like to visit it. As far as the tourist is concerned, is there any difference between visiting the Hague on Sunday, May 8th as opposed to Friday May 6th? Substantially bigger crowds?
      The sites I want to see are Mesdag, Escher Museum, Madurodam and the Peace Palace, as well as wandering around the King's Palace and Parliament. All sites (except Parliament) are open on Sundays. The King's Palace is never open to the public.
      Another theoretical alternative would be to visit the Hague on Saturday May 7th, but that would be somewhat inconvenient for me.
      What do you think? Thanks.

    • Moving to The Hague

      by Emma_TheHague Online Now Apr 24, 2013 at 9:03 AM

      I am moving to The Hague in June. I have tried to find information online but I find them a bit confusing. Some seem just very old. Then I decided to look for a recent guidebook on the Hague because I thought that maybe it was worth spending a little bit of money to have uptodate information since I am going to spend there at least 6 month (I am moving there for an internship at the ICC (btw anyone else is going there in the same period?).
      But I had not luck. I have found only guidebooks either on Amsterdam or to the Nethterlands in general (which according to the index it has only 6/7 pages at most). Is it possible that there is not guidebook specific to The Hague yet? Or it is just me that can't find it?
      Any info on the subject and from people moving to The Hague is appreciated.

      We have only half a day to visit The Hague but we want to see Scheveningen area, just to have a look.We know it is not enough time to enjoy the beach but is a curiosity.

      We have seen Tram No.1 goes from the center to Scheveningen. Which kind of ticket would be the cheapest one for doing this route and see the area during a very short time (20 min approx) and come back? Price?

      Thanks a lot.

      Probably there will be a strike 14, 15 and 16th februari amsterdam rotterdam the hague.
      This is not 100% sure yet.
      Trains will drive as it is the companies GVB,RET and HTM who will strike.
      What will happen if you want a taxi they will charge you much more money or wont even drive short rides (this is not aloud but i even hear it when there is no strike)
      So try to find out how you get close as possible with trains and print out how to walk just in case

      I'm planning to go from the Eindhoven Centraal to the Den Haag Centraal on a sunday (6th February). I was searching for the train ticket price and I found a site that said a discount fare ticket was 28€. Is that true? Is there a cheapest way to go from Eindhoven to Den Haag? I think 28€ is just to much.

      by leekayhwee Online Now Mar 20, 2010 at 12:21 PM

      What bus to take from Amsterdam to Hague, and how long does it takes ?

      I read about Railway from Amsterdam Centraal to Schipo to Leiden to Den Haag station.
      Is this a better way to get to Hague ?
      But I am lost how to get to places like Parliament Houses, and the Binnenhof.
      I can't find the tram services route ?

      I saw tram 9 being mention by Madurodam website to takefrom Den Haag (I suppose it is referring to Den Haag centraal).

      And I am interest to go to visit Delftse Pauw for pottery.
      how do I get to there after visiting Hague and Madurodam ?
      Do I need to take a railway train from Den Haag to Delft Station? I saw a traveller recommending to take tram#1 from Centrum in direction of Den Haag. So do I need to take a railway from Den Haag to Delft station before taking another tram to Centrum ? I could not have detail route for tram#1 serving Den Haag station.

      Would be of great help if I can get some advice.

      Is it a lively place? Is there people having a walk on the street in Scheveningen, or is it a ghost city? What about the nightlife there? And what about shops, groceries, stores, and trasportation to downtown?

      Dear friends,

      I am invited to join our Erasmus students for a visit in The Hague this upcoming Monday.
      During lunch time (12:00-14:00 approx) we are going to Scheveningen.
      If the weather would be nice I could have taken my picknick but I wonder... so does anyone knows where there is affordable but nice place where I could take a light lunch or snack and a drink if needed?

      The Hague.
      After finishing our program around 17u00 a 17u30, we still have two free hours to run around in The Hague before returning.
      If you like we could meet up for a drink or snack, or if you could give me advice where to go or what to see in few hours time... pls let me know !
      I probably won't be together with the students then, I might be together with a few accompaning colleagues.

      Thanks already!
