Are you renting a house in The Hague? Then the costs are often high. Rents have risen in many cities in the Netherlands. The Hague is of course no exception.

This is apparent from research by Pararius. This housing platform analyzes the rental prices of homes in The Hague and the rest of the country every quarter. Important addition: this only concerns the free sector.
Rental prices in the Netherlands
Nationally speaking, new tenants pay on average 16,18 euros per square meter. A year ago the price was 10,10 euros. This means that a rental home in the free sector is on average 6.6 percent more expensive than a year earlier. In the five largest cities in the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Eindhoven), the rents of homes in the private sector rose the fastest.
Rental prices in The Hague
The average rent in The Hague is slightly below the national average and fortunately it has also increased slightly less than the average in the Netherlands. These are the figures: in The Hague, tenants paid on average in the first quarter of this year 18.04 euros per square meter. Last year that was 04.18 euros and so is that an increase of 4.6 percent.
Will the rents in The Hague continue to rise?
The residents of The Hague who rent a house in the free sector will pay next year possibly
much more. According to economists, this is due to high inflation. This concerns new and existing tenants.
Annual rent increase
Landlords are allowed to implement an annual rent increase. The old rent may increase by 1 percent and inflation. On average, inflation is about 1 percent, but economists at Rabobank estimate that it will be 7.7 percent this year. As an example: you now pay 1. euros per month in rent? Then you pay 1.087 euros next year .
Is this definitely going to happen?
New. The cabinet is trying to counteract the enormous rent increase by introducing a law in which the Minister for Housing determines how high the maximum rent increase will be.

Don’t you have any holiday plans yet and would you like to earn some extra money? Then this vacancy as a holiday worker at IKEA Delft might be something for you. Jelena Cucakovic started as a holiday worker less than a year ago, but is now a sales manager. “I have been given many more opportunities through IKEA than I ever imagined”
Jelena moved from Serbia to the Netherlands just over a year ago for the love. “Even with my university education and six years of work experience, it was difficult to get a job in the Netherlands. Fortunately, I saw another expat living in the Netherlands share her experience on Facebook. This gave me the idea to apply as a holiday worker at IKEA Delft.”
The job interview
You can indicate in the vacancy which department you would prefer to work. After the job interview, IKEA Delft will look at which department would suit you best. “When I applied for a job, I indicated that I would prefer to work as a sales employee in the self-service warehouse.”
When Jelena was invited for a job interview, she felt the tension. “I didn’t speak the Dutch language well at all, so I found that exciting. Fortunately, this turned out not to be a problem during the conversation. I prepared my interview well in advance. For example, I had prepared questions and I read carefully into what kind of company IKEA Delft is. For example, I was curious about the vision, values and expectations of the company.”
The first working day
“I heard pretty quickly that I was allowed to work at IKEA Delft,” says Jelena. “Before you can start working, you first have an
After Jelena worked for three months as a holiday worker, the vacancy for team leader came along . “I saw an opportunity here to implement my ideas and improve processes internally. My knowledge about the products we sell was not yet very broad. But because of my attitude and motivation I got the job anyway.” For now, Jelena doesn’t want to go anywhere else. “I still have a lot to learn. In addition, IKEA Delft has so many options that I don’t see myself working for another company anytime soon.”
Tips from Jelena for applicants
Jelena also has a few tips for new applicants. “Don’t be afraid to apply for a position in a department you like. You don’t necessarily have to have the right experience. Just look at me,” she jokes. “It is important that you want to learn and work and that you are available for at least four weeks in a row.”
Apply now as a holiday worker
Do you also want to earn some extra pocket money during the holidays and maybe continue to work at IKEA Delft afterwards? Apply now for the position as a holiday worker and maybe you will become Jelena’s colleague in the future.
A hamburger from the barbecue, a blind finch at dinner, a tasty meat filling for lunch or a good dollop of filet americain on a cracker for breakfast. If you like meat, you like to eat it at any time of the day. But is this actually good for your body?
Vlees.nl they know all about this. This is the platform for the meat lover. Here you will find all information about veal, beef and pork and their production. Vlees.nl is an initiative of the Dutch meat sector and attaches great importance to being able to provide all information and answer questions about meat and its production.
Rich in nutrients
Vlees.nl emphasizes that meat contains many valuable substances, so that our body can function properly. Building materials
in meat are vitamins B1, B6 and B, vitamin D, iron, zinc, proteins and fats. These nutrients all have their own role in controlling our body. The most important vitamin is vitamin B. This ensures cell division, is of great importance in the maintenance of nerve cells and it prevents anemia. Vitamins B1, B6 and D ensure a strong skeleton and a better digestion of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Proteins are food for the construction of organs, bones, muscles, blood and the nervous system . Did you know that an adult human consists of about twelve kilograms of protein? Animal proteins (from meat or milk) have a more favorable composition than vegetable proteins (bread, vegetables). This means that they are also processed faster in your body and absorbed into your blood. If you omit meat, you need to eat a lot more vegetable protein or choose other animal products to get the right amount of nutrients.

Amount of meat per person per day
The amount of meat, which you could eat in a day to get enough good nutrients depends on your age or gender. Children need a lot of nutrients to grow. These nutrients can therefore very well come from meat, fish, chicken and eggs.
As children continue to grow, so does the need for good nutrients, which are mainly found in meat. Growth takes a lot of energy, which must therefore be supplied and supplied. Don’t just think about physical growth, growing bigger, but also about the development of the nervous system, the brain and strong bones.
Adults and seniors also benefit from the many nutrients that meat has to offer. This certainly also applies to seniors, to stay fit, but also at an advanced age when the body still needs extra strength.
The amount of meat you could choose depends on age, but also differs for boys and girls. Which amount is best for you depends on it… But beware: meat loses about a quarter of its weight (moisture) during preparation (baking or roasting). So you need 100 grams of fresh meat to make (net) 75 grams on your plate or on your sandwich. In any case, meat fits perfectly into a healthy and varied diet and lifestyle.
Let’s get cooking
In addition to all information about different types of meat, you will also find many recipes on Vlees.nl. Extra handy: almost all recipes contain the nutritional values per person. So you know exactly whether you are meeting your minimum nutritional values with that dish. How about steak Wellington

“The expectation is still uncertain, but a soaking wet or cold Easter does not seem to be an issue. There is a high chance of spring-like temperatures of until 18 degrees with regular sunshine”, according to Rico.
Coldest and warmest Easter
That are pleasant temperatures, but it can also be very different during Easter. For example, the average maximum temperature in 2011 on both Easter days 18 degrees. The mercury can also shoot the other way, because on 18 and 30 March 074 it only became 4.2 degrees . Easter 2011 was also cold with an average of 5.9 degrees.
Do you need a new passport or driver’s license? Make sure you submit the application on time, because the waiting times at the Civil Affairs Department are long in many Dutch municipalities. This is apparent from research by the AD.

The average waiting time for a new driver’s license or passport is now one month, but in some municipalities it is much longer.
Refugees from Ukraine
In many municipalities, the long(er) waiting times arise due to the registration of Ukrainian refugees or questions about their situation. Other reasons are the postponed marriages due to corona, which are now being planned and questions about energy surcharge. Add sick reports and staff shortages and you have all the ingredients for long waiting times. But what about in The Hague?
Waiting times in The Hague
We are unlucky in The Hague , because the waiting time here is very long. It takes twelve weeks here before you have a new ID. According to the AD, more people will be deployed at the municipality in the coming period to shorten the waiting time a bit.
Can’t you arrange many municipal matters online these days? Yes, but for a new driver’s license or passport, you still have to physically visit the municipality. You can, however, renew your driving license digitally . To apply online, a passport photo must be taken at a photographer or photo booth recognized by the RDW. That photo is then digitally sent to the RDW, which provides the driver’s license.
