The Venue

Where else other than in Scheveningen can you combine a beach walk, a magnificent sunset whilst savouring a tasty fish dish, with an evening packed with exceptional music and dance? Contemporary dance, classical ballet, opera, spectacular shows, pop and classical music: experience it for yourself right by the sea at the Zuiderstrand theatre!

Theatre by the sea

The Zuiderstrandtheater in Scheveningen is the temporary substitute of the Dr Anton Philipszaal and the Lucent Danstheater in the centre of The Hague. The theatre will be the home of the Nederlands Dans Theater and The Hague Philharmonic until such a time the new theatre in the city centre is ready. Its unique location nestled among the dunes with a view across the harbour and the North Sea is a veritable one-off in the Netherlands. With its ambient theatre, intimate concert room with amazing acoustics that can seat a thousand guests, and stage fantastic performances, the Zuiderstrandtheater has all the necessary ingredients in offering a sensational, jampacked evening.



The location of the Zuiderstrandtheater is truly remarkable: right next to the sea. The theatre is easily accessible by car, bike and public transport. If arriving by car, follow the signs to Scheveningen Havens. The Zuiderstrandtheater has its own car park. If you’re coming by bus you disembark just metres away from the theatre’s entrance (Zuiderstrandtheater stop). Additional shuttle buses operate between the bus rank at The Hague’s Central Station and the Zuiderstrandtheater at performance times. These buses depart an hour before performances start and bring you back to central station half an hour after the performance ends. All for just five Euros! In addition, four extra minibuses are on hand at performance times to drive you back and forth between the two nearest bus and tram stops, free of charge.
