When to Go

  • Den Haag's many museums offer warm welcomes and many events in the winter months.
  • Parks and beaches beckon locals and visitors alike in summer.
  • Accommodation prices are highest on weekdays during the Dutch parliamentary year (see www.houseofrepresentatives.nl for dates) and when the UN's Permanent Court of Arbitration and International Court of Justice sit. Restaurants are often fully booked at these times, too.
  • Most festivals are staged in the second half of the year. Feest aan Zee sees loads of events being held across town between July and December.
