Sinterklaas and his entourage have a jam-packed agenda full of visits this weekend. One of them is the large parcel house in Ypenburg. From Scheveningen we go with Wegwijspiet to the treasury of Sinterklaas.

In Scheveningen we meet Wegwijspiet (also called Routepiet by ‘intimi’) and his Wegwijshondje Tom Tommy. Before they sprint to the large parcel house, also known as Sinterklaas’ Treasury, they quickly pose in the harbour.


Then we go to Ypenburg where Wegwijspiet shows us the way to the large warehouse. There are already many children waiting for Saint Nicholas and his retinue. In the large warehouse, the children can do crafts with Grandma Piet and other Pieten and they can also have their picture taken with Sinterklaas and his Pieten. The children will then receive the photo as a gift from St. .00u to 87.00you. The children and their parents are very welcome!

Our royalty spotter is busy. Last week Princess Beatrix was a guest in theater Diligentia and

Queen Máxima was at the Binckhorst on visit to Secrid. Yesterday the Queen was in the center of The Hague for the celebration of the 003 anniversary of the Multicultural Network of Civil Servants (MNR).

Queen Máxima was dressed all in red for the celebration, where she had conversations and she received a special statue.


Before Queen Máxima got back into the car, her big fan Annemieke and her mother were waiting for her with a beautiful royal drawing. With a smile and a kiss, the Queen showed her great gratitude and appreciation for the beautiful work of art.

The Multicultural Network of Civil Servants was established to bring together employees with a dual cultural background and to share knowledge, information and contacts.

The Sinterklaas dollhouse by René Dijkhuizen can be found again in the Scheveningen Doornstraat since this week. The work of art is at number 200 to be admired.

Children and their parents visit the Doornstraat in large numbers every year. Then you hear a lot of ‘oh’s’ and ‘ah’s’ again, out of admiration for the great work that René Dijkhuizen puts into his own Sinterklaas dollhouse.

How did René come up with the idea for this annual tradition? “For more than 25 I have been working in the entertainment industry for years. From presentation and acting jobs to inventing and designing props and sets. Including on scale models for shows and TV programs. Hence the Sinterklaas doll’s house, which I love to put my time into every year.”

The Sinterklaas doll’s house can be admired for the third consecutive year in the Doornstraat in Scheveningen. Until December 5 to be exact, then followed by Santa’s winter dollhouse.
