Three days of sailing pleasure in the eyes of the hundreds of thousands of spectators who come to the parade every year.


Summer City Walking Tours (Saturdays until end of September)

At the Hofvijver lies the Hofgebied and the old village Die Haghe. Walk along the Binnenhof, where the counts, governors and Orange residents had their domicile. The guide leads you through the narrow streets of the old village with the medieval Grote Kerk as the center and the chic Voorhout with the city palaces. Be surprised by the stories about the beautiful center of The Hague!
