Holland - The Hague
Exploring: The Hague (1 Hour from Amsterdam)
Perfect for a half or full day excursion. The Hague is the political center of the country.
Things to See and Do:
Mauritshuis Museum - Famous for Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and The Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius. Tickets can be purchased 30 days in advance online.
Dutch Parliament Library - Next door to the museum; although you cannot go inside.
Stroll Streets - Take a stroll along the tree-lined Lange Voorhout that is framed by old mansions. Pause on Lange Vijverberg for a panoramic view of the Binnenhof - a long and elegant series of high-gabled buildings that now house the Dutch Parliament
Clingendael Park - A beautiful park with a Japanese Garden.
Le Bistroquet - on the Lange Voorhout
’t Hof van Eten - on the Lange Voorhout
Recommended to take a day trip with a “home base” in Amsterdam.
Here is a nice hotel in the city center near the Mauritshuis.
