In 2017 it will be 100 years ago that Theo van Doesburg established a journal called De Stijl to showcase the artistic philosophy of the Dutch art movement 'De Stijl". World-famous artists like Piet Mondrian, Gerrit Rietveld and Bart van der Leck were members of the avant-garde movement. The biggest Mondrian and De Stijl collection will be presented in the masterpiece of the architect who has been an enormous source of inspiration for many De Stijl artists: Berlage's Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.

The city centre is within walking distance of Hampshire Hotel – Babylon The Hague. Here you can walk along historic buildings such as Paleis Noordeinde, Koninklijke Schouwburg and the Binnenhof. The Binnenhof visitor centre organises tours of the Ridderzaal, Eerste Kamer and Tweede Kamer (Dutch senate and parliament buildings). Highly-recommended, even for those with only a mild interest in politics! Mauritshuis is close to the Binnenhof. This museum has a fantastic collection of Old Masters, including Johannes Vermeer’s The girl with the pearl earring.
Art and Culture
The world-renowned Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, with the largest Mondriaan collection in the world, is certainly worth a visit. View the largest painting in the Netherlands at Panorama Mesdag. On the beautiful Lange Voorhout, you can find the Escher Museum in Het Paleis. You can view almost all works by the famous graphic artist M.C. Escher in Queen Emma’s former residence. Prefer some modern technology to art? Then look, listen and experiment away at Museon science museum. Or visit Omniversum for films about man, nature and science on a huge IMAX screen.
Het Kurhaus and the pier are the most discernible landmarks by which you can recognise ever-entertaining Scheveningen. For beaches and dunes you can also visit Kijkduin. This family seaside resort has outstretched beaches and a lively boulevard.
Particularly in June, The Hague city centre is bustling with music and other events. Well-known festivals include Festival Classique, Vlaggetjesdag, Parkpop, Veteranendag and Summer Spirit Festival.
The exciting underwater world of Sea Life Scheveningen with more than 45 aquariums is close to Kurhaus. An absolute must is of course Madurodam, the miniature version of the Dutch landscape, Dutch cities and Dutch life. A great extra at Madurodam is “Waddenzee” playground.
Located on the hotel’s first floor, The LivingRoom restaurant offers fantastic views across the trees of Haagse Bos. The LivingRoom is open daily for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or simply a cup of coffee or afternoon drinks with snacks at the bar. The alcoves in this “living room” are ideal for an intimate lunch or dinner for two, or for a business appointment. With free Wi-Fi in the restaurant, business guests can check e-mails and get some work done.
The restaurant’s menu changes with the seasons and the wines and the personal service are excellent. That’s why many guests leave The LivingRoom with a feeling of great satisfaction and quickly pay a return visit.
