Christmas in The Hague


The holidays in The Hague such as Christmas will take place in a different form and will have a different meaning this year. There isn't a Cool Event and the Royal Christmas Fair will not take place. We, as editors, want to give you a warm feeling at this time of the year. So, just like every year, we collect a nice overview to enjoy the dark days.

The editors continue to supplement this article with more great tips!

Outings in the Holiday Season

The Hofstad's best attractions turn into festive winter extravaganzas, with the most beautiful Christmas market in the Netherlands, family-friendly outings like Cool Event Scheveningen and other iconic traditions like Jazz en Route and the New Year's dip.

Winter enjoyment by the sea

Grab a thermos of hot chocolate (with rum?) and get ready for the winter cold. An old-fashioned walk on the beach is always a good idea! At dusk, the entertainment in Scheveningen comes to meet you. Check the agenda for an overview of everything there is to do and see!

Ideas for gifts from our local entrepreneurs in The Hague

Shopping for others can be hard.... So use these shopping tips to score great gifts for the holidays.
