The December festive month is just around the corner. There is a lot to experience in The Hague. From a Christmas market on the Lange Voorhout to a winter shopping night and from the Dickens Festival in Loosduinen to a thousand residents of The Hague singing in the Atrium. We have listed a few nice winter outings:
Royal Christmas fair
From Thursday 8 to Friday 23 December the Lange Voorhout in The Hague will be transformed into the Royal Christmas Fair. Dozens of stalls with goodies such as oliebollen and glühwein, but also Christmas baubles and other nice gadgets can soon be found at this Christmas market in The Hague, where Santa Claus is of course also present.
Admission is free.
