Visit the Mauritshuis
The Mauritshuis is located in a beautiful 17th century city palace. It houses the ‘Royal Cabinet’ of paintings, a unique collection of 800 works mainly from the Golden Age. From Frans Hals to Johannes Vermeer to Rembrandt and of course the Girl with a pearl earring – this is a must see for real art lovers.
Enjoy the antiques market
You can also find plenty of art and antiques outside the museum as well. On the Lange Voorhout, across the road from the museum, a lovely antiques market welcomes visitors on Thursdays and Sundays in summer. Here you’ll find antiques, curiosities, books and modern art. While away a few hours here in the shade of old lime trees and buy something old at a surprisingly affordable price to remember your holiday in Holland...
See The Hague Sculpture
Once you have seen the antiques market, stroll along the Lange Voorhout to explore the sculptures. The Hague Sculpture transforms the Lange Voorhout into an open air museum where you can admire impressive, monumental sculptures free of charge.
