My City - Mark Rutte, Prime Minister

Welcome to my city! 

Being born and raised in The Hague, I am very proud of my city. It is a city that has everything; for their residents and visitors. Where else can you find so much classic grandeur and down to earth mentality in just one city? Where is so much history surrounded by the most modern architecture? The Hague is chic with a rough edge, history and present together - an exciting mix. The best way to get to know the city is by bike or just by walking around. I can tell you from experience: that will never be boring. I invite you to discover the city and experience what The Hague has to offer. Who knows, maybe we will meet on the way. I wish you a lot of pleasure in my city!

Mark Rutte, Prime Minister

My 5 tips:

The most beautiful building in the world

The Kunstmuseum Den Haag by the famous architect Berlage. A wonderful example of Dutch architecture and a great art collection.

This has to be a definite must

Walking in the dunes "on" Scheveningen or at Kijkduin. Or even better: to go running.

Should not be missed

Something not to be missed: the parliament buildings and surroundings. Take a picture of the most beautiful skyline of The Hague from the Lange Vijverberg, with the Hofvijver in front of the photo.

The best food

The Denneweg is a world famous street in The Hague for going out for a meal. Highly recommended. I love Indonesian food myself, with the Soeboer restaurant on Brouwersgracht as my favourite.

Secret tip

The Papaverhof from 'De Stijl' architect Jan Wils from the 1920's in the Bloemenbuurt. Still beautiful and modern, but also intimate and tranquil.
