The Hague

Some places you hold in your heart forever. The Hague is one of them: the best of both worlds. City of peace and justice. Of city and beach. Of new styles and old masters. Of shops and palaces. Of exotic cuisine and Dutch fish harbors. There is plenty to experience in this diverse city!


For a day of shopping, The Hague city center is the place to be. Famous department stores and large retail chains are within walking distance of trendy fashion boutiques and concept stores. Exclusive local shops can be found in the Hofkwartier, Noordeinde, and on the Denneweg. Another fun spot to visit is the renovated Foodhallen in the Haagse Bluf shopping mall, where you can find twelve food stalls and two bars. Looking for bargains? Then you should definitely visit the Haagse Markt. This market is the largest multicultural open-air market in Europe and is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Most shops in the city center are open from 10:00 to 18:00, but department stores like de Bijenkorf and Primark have longer opening hours. Thursday is late-night shopping in the city center, and on shopping Sundays, most shops are also open.
