Day 1

Start off with a trip to Mauritshuis museum, not only to take in the artwork that dates back to the 15th century but to view the beautiful building it is housed in. Follow this with a guided tour of the Peace Palace (if tours are on – it’s recommended that you check beforehand). Head to Scheveningen for a spot of lunch and follow this with a walk along the pier, stopping at whatever attraction takes your fancy. If the weather is decent, go for a swim or get in a game of beach volleyball down on the sand. If you tire from the area, head back to the centre of The Hague for a dinner in one of city’s excellent restaurants and finish off with a drink at the bar. Alternatively, stay on at Scheveningen where you can do the same.

Day 2

Start the next day by hiring a bike and riding around the city, stopping off to see the royal family’s palace and the oldest part of town called Binnenhof, where sights include a medieval castle. Take a trip to the Madurodam miniature town to see a scaled down version of a Dutch town. Rest your legs in a local pub and order some bitterballen, a typical Dutch pub snack and drink some local beer.
