Background for 200-year history of Scheveningen Beach Resort - Experience which traces the sea, beach and dunes have left in The Hague.

Exactly 200 years ago, Jacobus Pronk founded the first bathhouse in Scheveningen: a small wooden structure with four seawater bathtubs. This gave rise to the first seaside resort in the Netherlands. The fishing village evolved into a beautiful seaside resort overflowing with grandeur and also became the most popular resort in the Netherlands. During ‘Seaside Celebrations’, many Hague museums jointly present ‘Seaside Culture’. Discover which traces the sea, beach and dunes have left and visit the museums to see how the city and sea are eternally bound in works of art. But there's more. During an open-air exhibition on the boulevard, Hague icons will come under the spotlights and Omroep West will show in 12 mini-documentaries how culture and the sea in The Hague are interconnected.
