Beautiful Autumn colors in The Hague, Holland

These pictures were taken last Saturday (2008/10/11), it was a beautiful sunny and warm day. I decided to go to "Landgoed Clingendael", an old park on the border of the city of The Hague to visit the Japanese garden that was opened for the weekend. Usually that garden is only open in the Spring for a few weeks but this year for the first time in this time of the year. In total I walked 16 km trough the city, taking 521 pictures.

1. Urban development at the Central Station



2. Close to the station is the "Haagse Bos" park, that's more like a real forest in the middle of the city.



3.


4.


5. On the other side of the forest is the residential neighbourhood "Benoordenhout", a very nice to live.



6.


7.


8.


9.


10. After a small walk trough neigbourhood you reach the entrance of Landgoed Clingendael, the park is officially port of the city Wassenaar but for 2/3s it's surrounded by the city of The Hague



11.


12. The Japanese Garden



13.


14.


15.


16.


17.


18.


19.


20. The rest of the park is also worth visiting.



21.


22.


23.


24.


25. Nature in the city



26.


27.


28. Next to Clingendael there's "Landgoed Oosterbeek", a smaller but also beautiful park.



29.


30. Back in Clingendaal, more Amanita muscaria.



31.


32.


33.


34. I walked back into Benoordenhout.



35.


36.


37.


38.


39.


40. Forget about the credit crisis, the value of these houses just went up because of a new tunnel reducing the traffic through the neighbourhood drastically.



41.


42.


43. The headquarters of Europol



44. The skyline of the city



45. The "Archipelbuurt" neighbourhood



46.


47.


48.


49.


50.


51.


52. The crown of the 132 m high tower De Strijkijzer is seen from afar.



53.


54.


55. Plein 1813 square, with the "Dutch Virgin" on top of the monument to celebrate our victory over Napoleon.



56.


57.


58.


59.


60.


61.


62.


63. Malieveld,



64.


65. The Hague's highest tower, the 141.9 m high "Hoftoren"



My route



I hoped you enjoyed this selection of my pictures of the beautiful The Hague, City of Peace and Justice.

Excellent pictures! Thank you for sharing!

I particularly like the parkland shots - they're quite something!

You represented our city very nicely with this photoshoot, now it would be very cool if it would become a complete overview of the city, lets say some pictures of the other famous places in our town. So other persons can view the nice buildings on the Noordeinde, Vredespaleis, Kurhaus, etc etc etc.

Although i think you are by far the better photographer, i would love to help to make your post of our city complete. Just whistle if you need some help.

Coming back on this. Lovely pictures. Really!

Cheers
Mart

That was happiness then.
