Downtown The Hague

The Paleistuin is a garden downtown in The Hague.

Paleistuin Bloemen

It is a beautifull public place just behind the working office of our king and has a green field, kindergarten, a small rosarium and a shallow pond.


Just a few meters from the nice flowers, I get a grim reminder of the people who gathered here in the late 1980s. Happy times, but with a bad end.

Drawing Binnenhof

Tourists like to visit the Binnenhof. The Binnenhof (Inner Court) is a complex of buildings in the city centre. It houses the meeting place of both houses of the States General of the Netherlands, as well as the Ministry of General Affairs and the office of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands. The first drawing of the Binnenhof dates from 1586 and 500 years later, drawings are still being made.

Sand sculpture

Three sand sculptures have been built on the forecourt of Escher in the Palace (Escher in het Paleis) at Lange Voorhout. It is not a competition like last year, but the world champion has made something beautiful.
