Are you planning on going against the grain and visiting Scheveningen during the rain this weekend? Well, you’ll have to put your plans on hold or make alternative arrangements because maintenance is being carried at the railroad tracks around The Hague and almost no trains are running around there.
Disruptions near The Hague
From Thursday 15 to Sunday 18 August there will be track maintenance in between The Hague Central Station and The Hague HS which means no trains will be running between those stations.
Basically nothing will run near The Hague HS, so if you’re planning a trip to Amsterdam from Delft or Rotterdam than this will fudge up your situation too.
But fear not, the bus timetable has been adjusted to accommodate travellers.
Google maps pretty much tells you everything these days but you’ll have to travel via Rotterdam or Utrecht if you’re from the south and are heading north. We know it’s hard to figure out, we’re struggling too, even when you can understand Dutch it’s near impossible to say what the fudge is exactly going on.
Heey @NS_online er zijn vrijdag geen treinen tussen Den Haag HS en CS. Maar rijden er wel sprinters tussen Leiden en DH CS? (zoals de app aangeeft)

To travel to the Hague you will need to take the bus to the Hague HS and then catch the bus for the rest of the journey. Weirdly, there are still some trains running to The Hague CS every now and then, a sprinter here and there, at least from Leiden. So it also seems you’re still able to reach Schiphol from The Hague CS by train (but definitely not from HS).
Anyways, take some more time then usual. Changing routes means delays of 15-45 minutes could be added onto your journey but make sure you check the NS site to see all route changes.
Happy travelling people!
