Scheveningen is a seaside town with a very wide sandy beach that is great for walks, playing games and relaxing. There are two buildings that you won't be able to overlook when you're on the beach: the first is the impressive Scheveningen Pier. This pleasure pier is lined with cute shops and several eateries. If you walk to the end of it, you'll be rewarded with a fantastic view of the beach and the city of The Hague.
The second building is the Kurhaus. The Kurhaus is a Baroque-style hotel built between 1884 and 1885 and is well worth visiting for its art and concerts. The terrace at the Kurhaus is a great place to relax with a cup of tea or other refreshing beverage after a walk along the promenade. Museum Beelden aan Zee is just a short walk from the Kurhaus. The museum is unique in that it is the only museum in the Netherlands that is fully dedicated to sculptures. If this isn't enough culture for you, you can always go to Muzee Scheveningen, a museum for cultural and natural history. Here, you’ll find information about the animals living off the coast of Scheveningen and how the fishermen used to live.
Madurodam is another fun place that young visitors get a real kick out of. Here, a number of famous Dutch landmarks and historical cities are replicated on a scale of 1:25 over a surface of 62,000 m2. There's also a big playground and several restaurants - you can easily spend the day here!
And because Scheveningen is a stone's throw from The Hague, you'll be hard pressed to get bored. The beach, the museums and the great sights make this the perfect holiday destination for young and old. What are you waiting for? Go to Expedia's website and book an affordable trip to Scheveningen.
