The Hague – Den Haag

Since the 16th century The Hague (Den Haag in Dutch) has been the political center of the Netherlands. It is also the place for international organizations and embassies. The royal familiy lives nearby and has their work palace in the middle of the city center. The houses in The Hague have a different feel than in Amsterdam, for me they have a more royal look and feel. This city is well known for its own beach at Scheveningen. Many kids in the Netherlans visited the pier (with a ferris wheel over the sea!) or walked arount Madurodam a minature Netherlands. There are a lots of things to see and do.
