Grote Markt

The Grote Markt is one of the nicest parts of The Hague. The atmosphere on the Grote Markt is always pleasant and the nightlife crowd is often creative and idiosyncratic. On the square in the middle of the city there are various catering establishments that offer something for everyone: from brown cafe to cocktail bar, from music venue to restaurant. In addition, the Grote Markt also bears the 'Pop District' label. Live concerts take place under this name all year round, organized in collaboration with pop venue Paard van Troje.

Accessibility Grote Markt

The Grote Markt is accessible by public transport as well as by car. The Grote Markt can be reached by tram lines 2, 3, 4 and 6, bus line 25, and a 15-minute walk from The Hague CS and HS train stations. The nearest parking garages are Parking Spui, Centrum and Turfmarkt.
