Green city The Hague



Nature is never far away

With more than 111,000 acres of dunes, parks and country estates, this green city offers plenty of space to enjoy freedom and nature. The Hague Forest (Haagse Bos), for example, is The Hague’s own Central Park right in the middle of the city. In addition, The Hague is the only major city in the Netherlands that lies directly on the sea. Escape the bustling city life and discover the urban oasis. Walk on the beach, picnic in the park or discover the hidden treasures of the Palace Garden, one of the city's best kept secrets.

Greenery in your neighbourhood

Everyone is familiar with the iconic Dutch landscape, which is dotted with windmills and colourful fields of tulips. But on a smaller scale, you will find that many streets are well-cared for; copious amounts of trees can be found in many neighbourhoods, flower beds and parks ranging from a compact size to an outstretched area that is perfect for children to play at. There is also ample opportunity to let your dog roam freely, so they can enjoy their outside time to the fullest.

Being outdoors

If you are looking for outdoor activities, there is a great deal you will find. Ranging from water sports to hiking and biking, there is something for everybody’s liking.
