Although you can easily spend a week in The Hague alone, the city is also super conveniently located for day trips.

If you find yourself missing a more urban vibe, you can head south and take a day trip to Rotterdam, only 20 minutes away. The city is modern and pulsating with life, quite different from anything else you’ll see in the Netherlands!
