Undutchables in the city - The Hague

In this weeks blog we want to share tips from our Recruiters on places to visit and things to do while in the Hague.

As the Undutchables office is located right in the middle of the city, on Noordeinde, our colleagues like to visit Lola, a small coffee place next to the office that is also, interestingly enough, partly a bike shop. Our Italian colleague recommended their coffee; so you know it will be good!

If you are looking for a more substantial kind of meal we recommend The Penthouse restaurant skybar, this restaurant offers a range of delicious meals and also has lovely views over the city. If you are looking for something a bit more casual, MaMa Kelly on the Saturnusstraat could be an excellent option for you. MaMa Kelly specializes in either chicken or lobster. If a drink and bite is all you are after Rootz is a nice place to have a drink. Located on the Grote Marktstraat, Rootz offers 300 different beers. If you are heading towards the beach town of Scheveningen then Catch by Simonis might be a nice option. This seafood restaurant has an airy and light interior and is located right at the harbor.

For a more cultural day out The Hague has numerous possibilities. You could visit the Mauritshouse, where the famous Girl with the Pearl Earring is and take a stroll through the historical Binnenhof (the governmental buildings). The Peace Palace is only open for a few weeks a year but when it is open we would definitely recommend you to visit it. The Gemeentemuseum (municipality museum) of the Hague offers a wide range of ever changing expositions. If you are heading down to the coast the Beelden aan Zee museum in Scheveningen is a nice stop before going down to the beach.

The Hague has numerous festivals and events to offer throughout the year. The first edition of Parkpop was 25 years ago but the festival is still going strong in this music loving city. If you are looking for more theatre and food then De Parade is a great option. This festival is held every summer for 1.5 weeks. Dates can fluctuate every year so please consult their websites. Furthermore, when visiting The Hague around New Years you could join in on the famous New Years day dip into the ocean. All you need to do is where you swimsuit, go to Scheveningen and brace yourself for the cold once your body hits the water!

We hope our tips give you an idea of what to do when in The Hague and if you have any tips of your own we would love to hear
