Geographically, The Hague lies on the North Sea and is home to Scheveningen, the most popular seaside resort of the Netherlands, as well as the smaller resort of Kijkduin. This beach aspect really surprised me but my friends and I had a gorgeous late afternoon there. Coming from Bournemouth it's kind of a home-from-home really ;).
The Hague is also a place where you find stately, regal palatial embassies and mansions, gorgeous leafy green boulevards and parks, an array of wonderful museums and a lovely, truly indulgent cafe scene. So like I said, it truly has everything you could want from a city, and yet is very small scale. It felt a lot more continental than Amsterdam in some ways, and similar to a bit of London, a bit of France, a bit of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and well, you may get the idea now! It's definitely a European city I would be very, very content in.
My whole trip to the Netherlands was in a word truly, truly gezellig and if you ever have the chance to go, you absolutely must.
Have any of you reading this been to The Hague, or perhaps you live in The Hague? Let me know below, please :).
