Instock is located on the most beautiful spot of The Hague – next to the Hofvijver! They are open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Instock Instock collects unsold products from supermarket chain Albert Heijn and other producers. For example vegetables and fruit with imperfections, one day old bread and surplusses of meat and fish. Their creative chefs create delicious dishes out of these products.
Waste One third of the food production is wasted. That’s 1.3 billion ton kilo per year worldwide! Throwing away food occurs in the whole food chain. They want to change this by turning food surplus into delicious meals.
Court Pond Standing at the Hofvijver, 'Court Pond', the artificial lake beside the Binnenhof, one has a splendid view at numerous buildings from different centuries. The Hofvijver was first dug out by the counts of Holland in the late 13C. Originally a natural body of water among the sand dunes, the Court Pond was extended over the years. The excavated sand was piled up on the north side of the lake to form the elevated area known as the Lange Vijverberg, now occupied by a graciously curving line of mostly 18C mansions. The 17C buildings along the short side of the lake, the Korte Vijverberg, include the King's Cabinet and the city's historical museum.
