It looks a bit like an old building, but it could also be new so I don't know. Didn't know Sting was a chain, we don't have it here in Sweden.

Wauw great!
Nice to see people from outside like this city.
For me The Hague is still the second beautiful city after Amsterdam.
It has a special atmosphere. New and old are combined on a good way.

It’s like the city has everything you could wish.
Normally I’m not that positive about a city, but this city makes me really happy.
It has a metropolitan atmosphere, but also an old city centre.


*, The city has it’s own beach and a cool skyline no other city has like..

Thanks! I agree that the city is the 2nd nicest in Netherlands, because of the mix old and new, the beach, the skyline, the nice buildings, pedestrian streets...

Vredespaleis (Peace Palace). It houses the International Court of Justice since 1946.


It is a beautiful neo renaissance building at Carnegieplein. The Hague is considered the “juridical capital of the world”.


World peace flame. This flame was made from several different countries. There are also gifts from almost all countries of the world in shapes of stones.

Scheveningen:

Scheveningen is like a wealthy seaside suburb, but is actually part of Hague, that has a very long beach and a famous resort hotel. I relaxed there for a while before I took the tram back to downtown for the concert.


Scheveningseweg, the road to Scheveningen where the beach is.






Steigenberger Kurhaus Hotel, the most famous building in Scheveningen.

Back to central den Haag:


A free outdoor rock concert.



Paard van Troje, one of the foremost rock clubs in Holland.


Paard van Troje is not so big but has 3 floors.


The first band, Xandra from Germany.


The concert with Epica was very good. For those who don’t know it is a Dutch symphonic gothic metal band.






The singer from Stream of Passion joined on stage.
