Welcome to this post of just the best photos of The Hague ever taken

Amsterdam, Leiden, or Giethoorn are often mentioned as the most scenic towns of the Netherlands. Canals, windmills, and such, we all get that. And Rotterdam is the gritty urban city, for those big town skyline pics and massive modern structures. And then there’s the Hague, which is a bit of an odd duck.

Sure the Peace Palace and the Binnenhof are often photographed, but not many people will label it as that beautiful and awesome city in the Netherlands. So you can imagine our surprise (and pure joy) when we found these shots of The Hague by Kevin Coellner. He’s been steadily posting gorgeous shots of the city on his instagram-channel for a while now, the best of which you will find here. And yes, it has all the quintessential photos of The Hague one would expect (only 1000 times better) but we especially liked those photos of The Hague of ordinary places. Anyways, enough talk, time to start gazing at these gems:

Yup, that’s that normally ugly shopping street
A long exposure shot of the Scheveningen Pier at Sunset
Den Haag Skyline reflection – kind of extraterrestrial
The Hofvijver is always a good candidate for a winning shot
Ah, The Peace Palace on a snow day <3
Hotel des Indes
Sunset shots always steal my heart 🙂
Bang! This guy even makes the shopping street look nice
The Christmas Fair at the Lange Voorhout. So many pretty lights.
The Malieveld on a cold day
My favorite, probably adjusted a fair bit, BUT MY GOD WHAT AN AWESOME SHOT
The Kurhaus in Scheveningen (kind of The Hague as well) already is quite impressive, but this photo really makes it magical
De Stijl is always in style.
Love the mirror effect
Even the dark skies look incredible.
The futuristic rail thing pops up everywhere
Love this long exposure effect

I’m talking about these kinds of shots, normally not such a great scene here. But this is one great photo of the Hague
The North End Palace, at the perfect time of day.
Normally the area surrounding The Hague central station isn’t the nicest, but this shot blows our mind.

Want to see more of these photos of The Hague?

If you can’t get enough of these pics, and I know I can’t, then you can look up more of these beauties at his instagram account or at www.coellnerphotography.com. If you want to get anywhere near his level of photography then you’re lucky, he also does free photo tours through The Hague and (soon) also workshops. For more info on that feel free to like his FB-page!

  1. Nice views!

    Formally speaking The Hague never became a city and could be dubbed the largest village in Europe…..

    Perhaps another intresting article? 😉

  2. @Mike:
    The Hague received by King Louis Napoleon in 1806 and in 1810 by Emperor Napoleon the honorary title city. This did not give rise to any special rights as city law was abolished in 1798 during the Batavian Republic.
    So The Hague is a real city?
