I was in Den Haag for 2 days and bought a cheap camera there to take a few shots. I like how the city's skyline is changing nd I think the old and new parts are blending very well there. On my way back to Cologne (where I live) I made a short stopover in Düsseldorf as well.

Let's start with The Hague







The Binnenhof:





There was some demonstration going on there:

Thanks a lot for your comments guys :)

I have a few more photos of The Hague:





One last one of Hofvijver, Mauritshuis (great art museum with some outstanding highlights) and Binnenhof:



In a Den Haag bar:



My coat in the same bar after I came back from the toilet ;) :



Out of the attractions in and near the city centre I unfortunately visited before I bought the camera I can recommend you the following ones:

Panorama Mesdag (large panorama painting of the Den Haag district and seaside resort Scheveningen with 120m in circumference, very impressive!)
Noordeinde Palace (one of the Dutch royal palaces)
Passage (the oldest shopping arcade in the Netherlands, from 1885)
Duinrell amusement and water Park (picture)
Madurodam (miniature Netherlands)

My hotel was in Scheveningen, some 150m to the beach :)
This pic shows the city centre of Scheveningen, a nice seaside resort with a pier, many casinos, shops, restaurants, clubs and a large cinema:





View from the pier:



The beach:






I also liked the Sea Life Centre of Scheveningen.

The camera I bought is not capable to deliver any nice night shots unfortunately so sorry for the quality of this night picture of Scheveningen beach. In the background (to the right) you can surmise the famous Kurhaus of Scheveningen:



By day:

Leaving the city the next day:







A small slice of Het Strijkijzer:





One last view back to the city:



Still in the vicinity of The Hague: a part of Rotterdam's skyline (sorry for bad quality due to my location in a driving car and the foggy weather):



Typical dutch landscape:



A part of Utrecht seen from the highway:



The pics on the next page will show some parts of Düsseldorf where I made a short stopover before returning home to Cologne.

Thank you guys for those kind comments!

^ Yeah, Den Haag's skyline is experiencing a rapid growth currently :eek:kay:

For overview purposes and because noone asked for them Düsseldorf pics to finally show up yet ( ;) ) I decided to leave this page 100% dutch by showing some NL bonus pics from my last year's trip to The Hague, Delft and Rotterdam.
