Beaches of The Hague
The Hague is the only large city in the Netherlands directly located on the sea. There are several beaches along 11 kilometers of coastline, each with a distinct character.
Zuiderstand (South Beach) is one of the most beautiful parts of The Hague. This is the more quiet and 'secret' alternative between Scheveningen and Kijkduin, located immediately behind the dunes. This is where you will mainly see The Hague locals - in addition to tourists who sometimes manage to find their way here.

Noordeinde Palace with its gracefully landscaped garden is situated on the Noordeinde. Compared to other European palaces, Noordeinde is modest and enjoys a wonderful location on one of The Hague's shopping streets. The widow of William of Orange and her children lived there. In 1815 the palace was completely restored and used as residence for King William I. Nowadays King Willem-Alexander and his staff have their offices in the elegant rooms of Palace Noordeinde. The palace is not open to the public for the simple reason that it is still in use a working palace.

The L-shaped Lange Voorhout in The Hague merits its reputation as one of the finest urban ensembles in Europe. Its rows of linden trees were first planted by Emperor Charles V, and are supposed to have inspired the layout of Berlin's great boulevard Unter den Linden. It was here in the 17C and 18C that the famous and fashionable came to see and be seen, particularly during the Sunday church parade. The hundred year old buildings flanking its sides are now homes to various embassies, residences, offices and various cultural institutions. The summer and autumn months lend its gravel walkways to various festivals. The Escher Museum awaits at the end where one can unravel the Dutch artist's mysteries on optical illusions, and on Prince's Day the Golden Carriage passes down Lange Voorhout en route to the Hall of the Knights.
