About The Hague

The Hague is often in the news thanks to the work of numerous international organisations and companies which headquarter here. But there is more to it than that!

Introduction to The Hague

The Hague has a deserving reputation of prestige, stature and influence. It’s a place where important matters are discussed, where decisions are made and where alliances are forged. Our city is home to the Dutch Royal Family, the Parliament, Nobel-prize winning organisations, numerous international companies and is the second largest UN city. All of this adds to the gravitas of The Hague.

At the same time, The Hague offers surprising and refreshing diversity. Historic and modern architecture harmoniously interlocks in the charming city centre. The inspiring international vibe complements the traditional Dutch way of living which is well known for its enormous respect for social and environmental sustainability.

You might also be surprised by the city’s playful side – with its beautiful sandy beaches, promenades, bars, restaurants and a vibrant cultural scene, something that all our visitors love to discover.

The Hague is a city that matters: to its residents, to the Netherlands and to the wider global community. Here in The Hague we welcome your ambition to make a difference and we will do everything in our power to make sure that your event is a success.
