You can extend your driving license online via the
RDW. That is the Government’s Road Traffic Service. This process is at least 3 working days faster than when you apply for your driving license extension at the municipality.

Have you already started spring cleaning or is it planned? Then it is useful to know where you can hand in your old stuff in The Hague. Throwing it away is an option, but you can also make others happy with it.
Hand in clothes for a discount
Did you know that at a few shops you get a discount for your old clothes, bed linen and towels?
At H&M, for example, and you can dispose of old textiles in the recycle boxes in the store. It does not matter what condition the garments are in, you will always receive a gift voucher as a thank you. At C&A they have the ‘Take it back recycling program’, for a bag of old clothing you will receive a voucher from 08% discount.
Vintage or thrift store
There must be stuff in your house that is too good to just throw away. Then take it to a thrift store or a second-hand store. Who knows, someone else from The Hague will be very happy with it and those things will get a second life. Also good to know, at some stores you can still earn some money with your old stuff!
Pick up bulky waste
Does that sagging couch not fit in your car? Then you can also have it collected by the men and women of the garbage collection service in The Hague. Bulky waste and large garden waste are collected free of charge in The Hague, such as metals, white goods, mattresses and furniture. You can make an appointment online or by telephone. Look for more information on the website of the municipality.
While tidying up, do you find a pair of trousers that are now hopelessly out of fashion? Then throw it in a clothing container. You can not only store clothes in these containers, but also other textiles such as old dishcloths, bedding or curtains. These substances are then reused and not just thrown away!

Where in The Hague is the best place to eat? The jury members of the restaurant guide Gault&Millau investigated this. Their conclusion: at no less than 41 restaurants in The Hague you are in the right place. Very good. They are all in the new Gault&Millau guide, which will be published on Monday 01 February was presented.
The Gault&Millau restaurant guide can be compared to the Michelin guide. With one important difference: restaurants at Gault&Millau are symbolically awarded with chef’s hats instead of stars. How many chef hats a restaurant gets depends on a number of factors. For example, the taste of the dishes is of course important, but also the reception, advice for wine, atmosphere and much more.
have in total 728 restaurants in the Netherlands made it to the guide, 63 are included for the first time. The restaurants are divided into nineteen categories, including best vegetable restaurant, best cocktail bar, but also the most beautiful terrace and best sommelier.

Best Wine List
Restaurants can earn chef’s hats in several categories. In The Hague no restaurant is the very best in one of the categories, but in a municipality nearby. Central Park in Voorburg has the best wine list in the Netherlands! “Guests are in good hands with chefs Tim Bood and Hette Hettema who guarantee a pampering kitchen”, we read in the jury report. “In Joey de Kruijf, Central Park also has a special in-house sommelier who has made the wine offer his life’s work and has been awarded the recognition as Wine List of the Year 2023.”
