Kings Fair (13 April – 6 May)
As a tradition, around King’s Day, there is always a huge fair on the Malieveld and the Frederik Hendriklaan. With around sixty attractions the fair is put together in such a way that there is something for everyone.
The Saudade project celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Expatriate Archive Centre as an independent foundation. Its mission to preserve the life stories of expats, who leave behind home, family, and everything they know.
HISTORY OF THE HAGUE DAY (14 April)
Learn something new at the free History of The Hague Day (Dag van de Haagse Geschiedenis). More than forty museums, historical institutes and volunteer groups are participating in this event in the inner city of The Hague.
Peace Palace – temple for peace in The Hague (10 April – 14 May)
This year is the European Year of Cultural Heritage. A good reason to pay attention in 2018 to one of the most iconic buildings in The Hague: the Peace Palace.
Why is this international ‘Temple of Peace’ actually located in The Hague? What happens inside the building? What could be more international than this unique building? Who were the people who contributed to it?
The answers to these questions can be found in the exhibition ‘Peace Palace – temple for peace in The Hague’.
