Introduction to The Hague

Living in The Hague

The Hague is an ideal student city. It offers plenty educational services, a lively night-life, several beaches only a tram- or bike-ride away, many international organisations, tribunals, and corporations, and is the home of roughly 28.000 students.


The Hague has lots to offer students. It not only has many different study options, it also has an extensive cultural, sport and entertainment programme. Learn more about this ACKU Cultuurburo.


Although modern Dutch society is not very much concerned with religion and few Dutch people identify with an organised religion, it is undergirded by religious principals; you will see plenty of churches and other places of worship, you will have plenty of opportunities to practice your own religion if you wish.


The Hague is a great place for shopping. Set amongst The Hague’s ancient streets, you will find many shops ranging from upmarket boutiques to high street shops, art galleries, antiques and interior design stores. All the shops in the city centre and Scheveningen are open every Sunday.

Going Out

The Hague boasts a wide variety of bars and pubs mainly in the city centre or along the Scheveningen waterfront.
