Calais to Amsterdam
Rotterdam to The Hague (16 Miles)
The Hague is a city of international importance with many faces, home to many different cultures. Once little more than a country house near a pond, The Hague has developed into a city of international character and importance, a never-ending story: a little bit of history is added every day. The sea is a stone’s throw away! The Hague is the only city by the sea in the whole of The Netherlands. The beach is less than 15 minutes from the historical city centre by tram or bike. The city boasts 7 miles of beach in its backyard and is worth visiting in all four seasons. The Peace Palace has been the icon of The Hague for 100 years. Every day, hundreds of visitors pause at the entrance to take photos of this impressive building. Thousands of people work in and around it every day for over 130 international organizations for greater world peace and justice.
