How to Spend 2 Days in The Hague

How to Spend 2 Days in The Hague

The Hague—locally known as Den Haag—is the Netherlands’ third-largest city and a political heavyweight. Beyond the government buildings, however, The Hague’s cutting-edge restaurants, masterpiece-packed museums, and atmospheric neighborhoods demonstrate the city’s diverse appeal. Here’s how to make the most of your 2-day stay.

Day 1: An Introduction to the City

**Morning:**Begin your 2-day trip to The Hague with a relaxing, cultural immersion. The city is justifiably celebrated for its exceptional museums, of which the Mauritshuis Museum is a particular highlight. Venture inside in the company of an art historian to learn more about the canvases—including works by Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Rubens—on display.

**Afternoon:**Following your gallery-hopping, grab a light bite and get out in the fresh air: Afternoon is the perfect time to discover (and capture photos of) The Hague’s top attractions. A walking tour will help you navigate between local highlights such as the Peace Palace, Binnenhof government complex, and Old City Hall.

**Evening:**Once you’ve worked up an appetite, wind down your first day in town with a culinary excursion. Food-themed walking tours will invite you to sample numerous bites and visit several eateries in a single evening, while beer-tasting tours offer equal parts education and entertainment. 

Day 2: Alternative Explorations

**Morning:**After discovering The Hague’s heavy hitters, spend your second day visiting outlying towns and lesser-known neighborhoods. Begin with Delft: A quick trip by car or train, the town lent its name to the blue-and-white ceramics that have been made here for centuries. Go for a workshop tour, and even pick up a special souvenir.

**Afternoon:**Upon returning to The Hague proper, do as the Dutch do and go for a bike ride. Cycle through the oldest quarters in the city center, and even discover nearby beaches—it’s only a quick trip to nearby resorts such as Kijkduin.

**Evening:**The Hague may have a buttoned-up reputation, but visit Grote Markt and you’ll quickly discover a different side of the city. The bustling market square is ringed with trendy bars and restaurants that get ever more crowded after dark. Drop by to discover the nightlife—and for a celebratory end to your stay.
