Leann visiting the heart of the Dutch democracy

056 Leann in MauritshuisLast Sunday we visited the heart of our democracy; The Hague. Although Amsterdam is our capital city, The Hague is where you’ll find the seat of the Dutch Government and Embassies of foreign countries. We visited the seat and the world famous museum Mauritshuis which holds a large collection of famous artists like Rembrandt, Vermeer and Breughel. The trip was really easy. The Hague has several park and travel parking lots that offer parking for a small fee and free travel on all buses and trams of the The Hague Transport Service (HTM). I was done for just € 2 for two persons inclusive parking and tickets. This is an excellent service, which makes me want to visit The Hague more often (and we will).

Clicking on the picture of this entry will bring you to an impression in pictures with some description. For the important pictures I also included links to Wikipedia articles with interesting information about the Dutch Government and the Mauritshuis.



  1. I remember taking my uncles to Den Haag when they came for a vist. We really enjoyed our time there! Lovely city, although a bit too busy for my taste. Just like Amsterdam, they’re great for a day out, but in the end I prefer living in a quieter place. 😉 (After coming from Mexico City, you can’t blame me! 😉 )

    • I can’t even start to imagine what it would be like to live in an extremely large city like Mexico. It shouldn’t be funny anymore.
