Tour: The Story of The Hague - Sightseeing in The Hague
‘The Story of The Hague’ is a city walk for young and old alike and is designed to
introduce participants to the city’s history. The tours will be held not only in
Dutch and English but also in German and French (on request). Led by a guide from
Gilde The Hague, the tour takes you to the most prominent places in The Hague’s history
starting with a visit to The Hague Historical Museum. There you will see some great
objects from The Hague’s history, such as the ‘Tongue and Toe’.
Followed by a walk round the historic city centre and the Mesdag Quarter, the tour
ends with a visit to Panorama Mesdag. Here you enter ‘the biggest painting in the
Netherlands’ and you will experience the magical optical illusion of this fascinating
1881 panorama of Scheveningen.
Adjoining the Mauritshuis, the Binnenhof is surrounded by parliamentary buildings
that have long been at the heart of Dutch politics, though parliament now meets in
a modern building on the south side.
The central courtyard looks sterile now but was once used for executions. A highlight
of the complex is the 13th-century Ridderzaal (Knights' Hall). The Gothic dining
hall has been carefully restored.
Secret Gardens: De Japanse Tuin the magnificent Japanese Garden in Clingendael Park
reopens to the public on 30 April 2012. The garden is open daily from 9.00 to 20.00
hrs. until 10 June 2012. Admission is free.
The Hague is a city of royal stature, a special touch in the entire city is reflected.
Yet holds Hague more than this gracious face. From majestic sights to neighborhood
cafes and fancy restaurants to a Harinkje gasping for Buitenhof: The Hague is royal
but human time. The Hague also has a prominent international role. The rich history
of the city is reflected in the magnificent buildings scattered across the city.
Beautiful parks and the beach a short distance, give the city a special character.
We went to investigate in this big city and came to many fun and unique places that
are worth visiting.
If you like model railways or miniature objects, this place is paradise. The models
are beautifully constructed and very accurate, and the grounds are landscaped with
lawns and gardens and hundreds of bonsai trees, many of them 6o years old but only
1/2 metre high! The models are exact replicas of real buildings in Holland. if you
are having a trip to the Netherlands it is really worth checking out some of the
interesting buildings you might see by going to see them in Madurodam first! Utrecht
cathedral, the canals of Amsterdam,many historic houses,
