Important icon for The Hague

The Pier in Scheveningen extending 400 metres into the sea with its islands was built around 1900 as a wooden promenade above the sea. It burned down in 1943, but in 1961 the Pier was rebuilt out of cement and officially reopened. Nowadays the Pier offers shops, restaurants a picnic area and sun decks, to name such a few. In October 2014, De Pier acquired two new owners: KondorWessels Vastgoed (VolkerWessels) and Xcentric Hotesl BV. They have turned De Pier into a creative and innovative place with catering, art and culture.


The Pier is surrounded by all kinds of attractions in Scheveningen, such as SEA LIFE, the Palace Promenade, Museum Beelden aan Zee, Holland Casino, Pathé and the Circustheater. There is plenty to do for young and old in the immediate vicinity of De Pier for four seasons. At the Palace Promenade shopping center you can shop seven days a week.


The Pier in Scheveningen is easily accessible from the center of The Hague by public transport, car and bicycle. From the Kurhaus stop you can walk to De Pier within three minutes. There are several parking garages in the immediate vicinity of De Pier: Parking Nieuwe Parklaan, Parking Kurhaus and Parking Scheveningen Strand.
