Zeeheldenkwartier, Duinoord & Statenkwartier
What are you going to do?
Already familiar with all of The Hague’s sights? Then this route is perfect for you. It takes you along the lesser-known places in the Statenkwartier, Duinoord and the Zeeheldenkwartier. These districts are situated just outside of the city centre and are the place to go for art lovers.
The Statenkwartier is one of the wealthier districts of The Hague, where you walk past Art Nouveau houses and elegant shops. It has an international ambiance due to the numerous expats who live here. On Sundays, buy a fresh baguette or croissant at Pâtisserie Philippe Galerne or get some Lebanese bites at Meza. Visit the famous Gemeentemuseum or go shopping in the Frederik Hendriklaan.
The route slowly transforms from swanky to more creative. Duinoord is very popular amongst young couples that live in the characteristic 19th century triple-layer houses. The atmosphere here is casual and you find pleasant lunch spots like Haver. The route then takes you to the creative Zeeheldenkwartier, where you walk along the Prins Hendrikstraat. A street full of quirky cafes and creative initiatives.
In the Piet Heinstraat you find plenty of unique places in terms of design, vintage and delicacies. End your day on one of the many terraces on the Anna Paulownaplein.
