At the Binnenhof (which translates to ‘Inner court’) and the Ridderzaal (‘Knights’ hall’) you will find the Dutch Houses of Parliament. Other than seeing Dutch politicians cycle past, you can admire the beautiful historic buildings and go on a tour through this important complex. Especially the ‘Eerste Kamer’ (Senate hall) and the Ridderzaal (13th-century ceremonial hall) are well worth seeing from the inside. Are you a fan of the curious mix between old and new?
Delft is a city in between Rotterdam and The Hague that is mostly known for its characteristic pottery and its technical university. Its picturesque and atmospheric old city centre holds two imposing medieval churches at a stone’s throw away from each other, which are called the Old Church and the New Church. These churches are very significant monuments, in part thanks to the people that are entombed in them. The New Church even holds the Dutch Royal Crypt.
Schiedam is a lovely place to end the day. The city’s charming old centre is centuries old and is full of sights. For example, you can find the highest classical windmills in the world here! If you arrive in time you could even go for a relaxing guided canal cruise, during which you will glide past all the main sights and can enjoy the cool breeze on the water.
