Guided tours of Political The Hague
In The Hague, ProDemos' visitors' centre offers English-spoken guided tours. Explore the Dutch House of Representatives and get to know the Dutch political system. Learn about the history of the House and the current renovation of the ‘Binnenhof’, the medieval complex of parliament buildings.
The guide will show you around the temporary home of the Dutch House of Representatives and will elaborate on how the House of Representatives work, explain the Dutch political system and show the architectural highlights of this relatively new building. You will hear why some of the seats in the Dutch House of Representatives do have a coat of arms on them and others don’t. Historical and current stories will give you an impression of political life in The Hague. During the tour you can ask everything you want to know.
Due to the renovation of the Binnenhof, the Dutch House of Representatives has moved to a temporary location on Bezuidenhoutseweg (near Den Haag Central station).More info about guided tour Dutch House of Representatives
