Welcome to The Hague
Welcome to The Hague event
The Hague

Moving to another country can, at times, feel overwhelming. Whether you just arrived in the Netherlands or already settled in, your stay here involves some red tape to get through. Even more so when you’ve brought your family along with you. That’s exactly where our newest event comes in!

On Friday March 8 The Hague International Centre organises ‘Welcome to The Hague’ – the family edition. So would like to get to know The Hague better? Meet fellow expat families? Receive information about formalities, schooling, day care and playgrounds? And tips on what to do in your free time? Then this event might just be the thing for you!

The programme includes:

  • an overview of useful resources for finding information.
  • an opportunity to ask questions.
  • presentations on ‘Living in the Netherlands’ and ‘Who are the Dutch’.
  • information about The Hague International Centre, ACCESS and tourist information.
  • a walking tour of The Hague's historic city centre.
  • we'll end the walking tour with a free drink at The Hague International Centre.


Friday March 8 from 10:00 hrs to 13:30 hrs.
