The Westduinpark is a nature reserve with various protected species of plants and animals right between the Hague and the sea. Find yourself between dune oak forests and open plains accompanied by Shetland ponies, sheep and Scottish highlanders. Don’t be surprised – the Westduinpark is a recreation area the grazers help to maintain. Make the most out of your visit and go hiking, cycling or horseback riding to explore the beautiful park.
The Peace Palace is not only an impressive building but also follows a meaningful mission: promoting peace and justice. In this building the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Hague Academy of International Law and the Peace Palace Library come together to work towards this mission. Learn more about the so-called temple of peace and justice by booking a guided tour for the Palace or its Garden in summer or by stopping by at the visitor center that is open all year around.
