Opening hours

Opening hours The Hague
Adjusted opening hours & closures COVID-19 from October 14th, 2020
Shopping after 8 o'clock in the evening is for a period of 4 weeks -starting October 14th- no longer allowed.

In general, all shops are open again, but due to the Corona virus, some shops in The Hague city centre still have adjusted opening hours. For those who want to be sure whether the store of their choice is open, it is wise to visit the social media and website of the store in question. This prevents you from standing in front of a closed door. A great tip for those who prefer to avoid the crowded hustle and bustle on the streets: shop during the morning hours on a weekday, for example between 10:00 and 12:00. It makes your shopping experience a lot quieter, faster and therefore easier.

Try to shop as targeted as possible. It is tempting to look around for another much-needed new pair of sneakers, but save this enthusiastic fun shopping for a later date. A simple tip, but with a great effect.
