The Hague step-by-step - what will open again and when


Step-by-step. In the coming months, the measures taken by the national government will slowly be relaxed if developments in the spread of the Corona virus allow this. We are happy to provide you with an overview of "reopening" messages received by us below.

The editors will continue to supplement this article.

We recommend that you always consult the website of the relevant location. General rules are:

  1. Online reservation for a specific day or time is mandatory, even if someone already has a ticket or voucher.
  2. Only go out the door when everyone in the group is free of complaints, so no fever, coughing, sneezing, etc.).
  3. Come alone or as a group, with people from the same household.
  4. Come with your own transport, the capacity of public transport is limited and must be relieved as much as possible.
