The Malieveld in The Hague is a large grass field located opposite The Hague Central Station. It is a major venue for parties, funfairs, concerts and markets that are organised throughout the year. The Malieveld also frequently hits the news due the fact that it is a favourite place for protests and major manifestations. It is always worthwhile visiting to see what is going on.
Temporary events at the Malieveld
Each year in the same months various events are organised at the Malieveld. In May you can enjoy dance, spicy cake and rice dishes during the Eurasian Tong Tong Fair. The Beat City musical festival is held in July and hosts (inter)national artists, among whom Keane, Golden Earring, Caro Emerald and Pink. In September you can feast on candy floss and whirl around high above The Hague at the annual fun fair. Circus Renz is one of the best circuses in Europe and is traditionally organised at the Malieveld in October.
Permanent activities at the Malieveld
Don’t be worried about visiting the Malieveld on a quiet day. Enjoy the tranquillity and walk along the grass field towards the deer grazing in the animal field or admire the skills of skaters, boarders and BMX cyclists at the in-line skating ring. Order a pancake or plate of mini pancakes in the traditional Dutch waffle pavilion.
