When you visit Den Haag (The Hague) this is a MUST-SEE! It will take you back centuries to the Holland of yesteryear when the counts built this complex. Conveniently located in the city it provides amazing views of the medieval castle, complex and is located on the The Hofvijver (a large rectangular pond). Great for strolls any time of day!

I've been in and around the Binnenhof parliament building on a few occasions. Despite its proximity to bars and shops it is peaceful and quiet. The small lake is beautiful and the inner square well worth seeing.

We come to the Hague every time we need important documents for the next travel to the far east. This time we visited some historical edifices which we haven't visited yet. Here in The Hague we saw monumental old buildings particularly Binnenhof (Inner Court) testifying eight centuries of governance in the Low Countries. According to my husband, this is the... More

Every time I walk through the court, I am amazed by its glory. Take it all in, in what ever time you need and ask a passerby some information. Sometimes they have some time left and most of the true locals can tell a few fun facts.

This was a 'once in a life time' experience. I was invited for tea with Dutch prime-minister Mark Rutte in his office in the small tower of the Binnenhof. We had a pleasant conversation on creating mutual understanding between citizens of different cultures. And afterwards a spectacular tour in the Ministerie van Algemene Zaken. Mark Rutte is a nice friendly... More

What an amazing courtyard, surrounded by buildings and a large gold statue, well worth viewing. Wrap up warm if visiting in winter.

It' s a nice place to learn about the history of The Hague. I especially liked the garden and the fleet (?) next to it. A true oasis.

We took a guided tour and Im glad we did. We had walked through the courtyard on many previous visits but never taken the time to visit the inside. A very knowledgeable guide who encouraged questions and knew all the answers. The buildings are spectacular and are a must when going to the Hague. It was the right length for... More
