Museums and attractions
In The Hague you can no longer ignore street art! Besides London and Paris, our city is really the place to be to discover the most beautiful murals. Over the years, many murals have been added throughout the city that have been commissioned. On foot or by bicycle and (shared) scooter, you will literally be amazed!
The Hague Street Art and graffiti
Street art artists aim to brighten up the city with murals. Graffiti has the difference that it consists more of ' graffiti name tags ' and slogans. What they have in common is the use of paints and aerosols and a message in creative designs. It is difficult for street artists to find places for their creations. Platform The Hague Street Art is committed to street artists to be able to show their work in a legal way. They hope to give street art a positive image by means of workshops, tours and team outings . And that works! The combination of the artworks, pride of The Hague and public accessibility has ensured that street art is popular in our city for visitors and street artists. The nice thing is that there are always new and temporary projects on display.
