Royal city

The residence of the Royal Family for centuries

The Hague is a royal city with a high feel-good factor. After all, you might spontaneously encounter members of the Royal Family on the street or in one of 'their' stores. You'll also stumble upon the House of Orange; the many historical monuments, the presence of residential and working palaces, royal thoroughfares and horse-drawn coaches.

Palaces in The Hague

The city centre of The Hague continues to exude the allure befitting of a royal city. Stroll through the historical streets and soak up the atmosphere of bygone days. Visit the places where magnificent parties were held, fit for nobility. Discover the location of Queen Emma's winter residence, or where work is done every day at Noordeinde.
