One of The Hague's most charming districts
To enjoy one of beautiful buildings and charming squares, a visit to one of The Hague's most charming districts, Zeeheldenkwartier, is a must. The 'Venetian' part of The Hague, best described as a small maze, is located around Prins Hendrikplein. In addition to grand buildings, there are also beautiful 19th century almshouses in Zeeheldenkwartier. The substantial gardens immediately catch the eye. At Plein 1813 enjoy a walk around the enormous monument that heralded the foundation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Linger at Anna Paulownaplein with its lovely cafés, stores and beautiful houses. Beetroot, home-grown spring onions, organic beans grown with vitalized water, wild spinach, fruit and much more is on sale every week at the Zeeheldenmarkt. The choice of restaurants in this district is extremely diverse, from an authentic Indonesian rice table in tiny restaurant Bogor Rumah Bakan in Van Swietenstraat to a quick dish of the day in De Klap on Koningin Emmakade.
