Haagse Hout


Haagse HoutOutside the city centre lies a slightly less dynamic but equally interesting area. This part though has fewer hotels, still provides you with affordable options. It is close to the city centre but less hectic, therefore, suitable for anyone who wants to tuck in early.


Haagse Hout is proud to have Madurodam, the smallest city in The Netherlands. It is a 1:25 scale model of a Dutch town. Here visitors can get an overview of the city structure as well as the tiny-sized landmarks like Schiphol Airport, the Port of Rotterdam, or Dam Square.


This area also houses Clingendael Park, the most impressive park in The Hague. Built four centuries ago, this place is well-known for its Japanese garden, where tourists can witness cherry blossoms in full bloom if you come at the right time of the year.

LoosduinenThis area is the place to be if you are an ocean lover. From the city center, you can take tram 1 and 9 or bus 22 and 24 to reach here. Loosduinen is no less bustling than the city. Visitors will be charmed by the pretty local clothing stores and various cheap-eats as well as fine dining restaurants.


This part of the city offers visitors lots of beautiful hotels. The Kurhaus is impossible to miss as it is a magnificent seaside hotel. This building is even more glorious when the sun goes down and the light goes up. There are also multiple hotels and hostels nearby for you to choose from if you wish to wake up to the sight of a serene ocean.


Two notable sights of Loosduinen are Scheveningen and Celestial Vault. Scheveningen, once a small fishing village, is now a lovely attraction with an entertainment complex called The Pier. The beach of Scheveningen is a beloved spot of so many people not only in The Hague but also from nearby cities and Germany. Sitting on the sand looking out the vast ocean and feeling the wind in your hair is an experience like no other.


The Celestial Vault is not a destination known by many but those who have heard of it will want to visit it. It is a broad artificial crater in the dunes of Looisduinen. It is filled with grass and in the center, there is a bench for you to sit with your loved one. On nights when the sky is clear, visitors can observe a sky full of stars, which creates a truly brilliant memory.
