The Mauritshuis, located on the Hofvijver itself, was once a residence for a noble cousin of the royal family. An art collector, his private gallery was added to over the years by several monarchs and eventually taken over by a private foundation and turned into the premiere collection of Dutch masters' artworks from the golden age of the country's empire. Today, the museum if one of The Hague's premiere tourist attractions and contains such iconic works as Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring and Rembrandt's Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp.

Tango Centro

Tango Centro specializes in teaching and displaying that most Argentine of arts, the tango. Though this is their specialty, the school also offers lessons and classes in ballroom dance, salsa and on occasion special programs like Afro-Cuban dance as well. Though most courses are for a longer term, it is well worth dropping by for a single session, and on occasion the school opens its doors for galas and exhibitions as well.


The Zuiderpark, just southwest of the city center, is a wide green expanse delineating the borders of several neighborhoods. It is a favorite spot for outdoor recreation in the city, with its more open and relaxed atmosphere than the Haagse Bos nearby. Once the site of the Zuiderpark stadium and home of The Hague's beloved soccer club, the venue for their games has since moved to a new stadium just outside the city limits. Apart from its lovely waterways and lawns, the park also features several courts for sports such as handball and bocce, and is the site of the Zuiderpark open tennis tournament. The Zuiderpark is also the scene of the yearly rock festival Parkpop and other outdoor events.


The Binnenhof is a complex of buildings which date back to the 12th Century when The Hague was just a hunting retreat for the nobility. Since then, the Binnenhof, or inner court has become the seat and symbol of the Dutch Republic. Here was the seat of the Parliament that sent Henry Hudson to discover the river that bears his hame in the early 17th Century. Here sat the assembly of States General that lent their name to Staten Island and whose constitution inspired the founding fathers of the US. Since those days, successive Dutch governments have continued unbroken in this location for centuries. Today, the Binnenhof contains several locations that are closed to protect the machinery of state with the exception of rare guided tours. However, the Binnenhof does include several public spaces that are worth viewing, including the Ridderzaal, oldest building in The Hague.


The historic Ridderzaal, or Knight's Hall, is the oldest remaining structure left on the grounds of the Binnenhof. This 13th-century great hall is festooned with the coats of arms of many of the Netherlands' noble houses and some exquisite artwork and antique furniture. Viewing is generally open to the public, but on some state occasions the Ridderzaal is in use by the government. Principal among these are the rare occasions on which the monarch addresses the nation from inside the hall.

Leidse Schouwburg

Leidse Schouwburg remains one of the most prominent cultural venues in Leiden. Its long-standing history dates back to the 18th Century. In the year 1705, the then noted theater actor Jacob van Rijndorp proposed the construction of a new drama hall on Oude Vest. Considered to be one of the oldest theaters of Netherlands, it underwent a major overhaul in the year 1865. The architect commissioned for the redesign was Jan Willem Schaap, who created a spectacular facade and a horse-shoe plan inspired by several Italian theaters. Post its renovation in the year 1997, it was ornately furnished with red velvet seats, gold ornaments and imposing chandeliers. It plays host to a number of theater groups from Leiden and other cities. Apart from theatrical plays, it also stages cabaret, dance and musical galas.
