Top Tours & Activities in The Hague
With a modern skyline and historic center, The Hague offers many more attractions than the political infrastructure it’s famous for. There are plenty of things to do, from shopping and sightseeing to lively nightlife. But first, see our list of what to see.
The political center of Holland, the Binnenhof is the oldest House of Parliament in the world. Tours are conducted in Dutch, so go for the audio guide, and book in advance.
Feel like a giant with a visit to the Madurodam – a miniature Amsterdam in the Scheveningen district. Updated regularly, and interactive to please kids, it’s a fun and wacky spot.
With work by Rembrandt van Rijn and Johannes Vermeer, including Girl with a Pearl Earring, this is the place to visit for a sense of the Dutch Golden Age of painting. Kids go free.
Home of the International Courts of Justice, this is The Hague’s most famous attraction. Admission and audiotours are free, while a 45 minute guided tour costs 9.50€. Do book ahead.
This museum in the Het Palais celebrates all things M.C. Escher – he of the mind-bending and intricate illustrations. Be fascinated by his imagination and optical illustions.
Love cars? Don’t miss the world’s largest private collection of classic automobiles, dating back to 1886. Tickets cost 14.50€, with concessions for large groups and children.
Enjoy the largest Mondrian collection in the world at this funky museum, plus modern art, music, print and fashion exhibits. It's a great place for an introduction to Dutch art.
Hostels are a cheap option for budget travellers, while there are plenty of hotels ranging from budget to boutique, particularly around the city center, where you’re a stone’s throw from the action. In recent years, serviced apartments have become another, popular alternative.
Wondering when to come? It’s nicest in August, so visit The Hague then for more sun and mild evenings. January is the coldest month. As Holland’s close to the sea, it can rain throughout the year, so bring your umbrella just in case!
Rotterdam The Hague Airport is around 30 minutes with the train or the Airport Shuttle (Bus 50) from The Hague. The airport serves most major European business cities.

What People Are Saying About The Hague
If you want in one day to see three different cities this is the best choice. Delft was so beautiful, Delft potery very interesting, Hague beautiful too and Rotterdam perfect choice for persons who want to see an industrial city.
read through list of attractions you can use it on before buying. Excellent value if you want to use all gold and silver tickets on things you want to see.
We thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. The only negative is that there were some stops that we simply would love to have spent more time. This itinerary provided a great overview and if we had more days we could have revisited our favorites.
Very presentable great knowledge of the towns and their history, Nothing was to much trouble.
Gerk picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel in Central Amsterdam in a private car. He gave us a wonderful walking tour in both the Hague and Delft. The highlight of the trip was the visit to Mauritshuis which among many others has three Vermeer paintings and the "Goldfinch" by Fabritius. Also and in my opinion, not to be missed, the Escher museum which was also one of the Royal residences is a must see if you like Escher. An excellent and very pleasant way to see the Hague and Delft. Also very reasonable price for a private tour. Gerk is a very nice and pleasant fellow to spend the day with, you will enjoy your trip.
