The Hague City Guide


You may know The Hague from the very famous international conventions that were held within its walls but aside from the venue for history altering events between nations, this place is also a great spot to take those few weeks you have off every year when you can just kick back and relax. The Hague has always been the seat of power and governance in The Netherlands although it is not the nation’s capital. Many international agreements were promulgated and signed here because it was and still is considered as a neutral party. The government of this city as well as that of the entire country were and still are determined to remain the ally of every other nation. This decision has done a lot of good for the country especially during war times as it was spared from extremely violent altercations. Aside from being historically significant, there is no doubt that there are so many things to do in this lovely city. You can take your family here are have the best vacation you can ever have in a lifetime. The sights alone will knock your socks off and the activities that you as well as your kids, if you have any, can enjoy will definitely gather memories that will last. Visiting The Hague Art City- This part of The Netherlands happens to be where the seat of art and culture is. When you visit the city, your trip will not be complete if you will not make a stop at some of the most comprehensive art collections in the world that features pieces by world renowned artists and some of the up and comers in sculpture as well as other visual arts. A large number of art exhibitions, festivals, and presentations are lined up every year by The Hague Art City in order to attract more Dutch tourists as well as other people from other countries who are also patrons of the art. What is most interesting about this side of The Hague is how its government concentrates on funding events that would boost the city’s tourism in the middle of a major global economic turmoil. The hotels in this city are known for providing their guests with the best accommodations that have been incorporated with a personal touch. You can choose among the three star, four star, and five star hotels in the area depending on your budget as well as the type of accommodations that you need. You will never go wrong with the five star hotels if it is luxury and high end pampering that you are looking for. The lobbies alone are immaculate and the room service they offer is just sinful. The less prestigious but equally accommodating hotels can be found in the area if you are on a budget. The three star hotels bring comfort as well as service that goes well beyond your expectation. The mark of a true European excursion is the gastronomic feast that that you would partake in while you are in this party of the world. The cuisines that you will have a taste of will make you sing show tunes particularly some of the most special desserts that are so sinful there should be floggings administered each time they are served on the table. European dishes are known to be very rich in taste and inexplicably delicate in presentation. There are several restaurants that offer the best dishes you can ever have in your life, some of them have to be book several months ahead. If you are into exploring with your taste buds, you can also try places that offer a wide array of international cuisine including Oriental, Mediterranean, and many others.
