I will be your guide on a bike tour of around 25 km (approx. 15.5 miles) during which I will show you the city. The Hague is the seat of the Dutch government and residence of the Royal family; it is known as the international city of peace and justice and as a green city with lots of wonderful nature. We start at 11:00 a.m. and finish at 15:30 p.m. at the point of departure. On the tour you will see historical buildings, the buildings of Parliament, the Royal palace, foreign embassies, museums, parks, the beach and the harbor. Many of these places are already part of my life from childhood. The pace will be around 8-10km (5-6 miles) per hour and there will be plenty of opportunity for photos. About halfway, I offer you lunch and drinks at my home which gives you the opportunity to recover for the second half of the tour, ask any questions you would like and learn a little about life in The Hague. A bike tour is one of the best ways I could think of to experience The Hague. The Netherlands is a paradise for bikers and The Hague is no exception. The majority of the tour will be on separate bike paths and quiet streets and the route is almost flat.
I was born and raised in The Hague and I am already living in the city practically my entire life. I would love to share with you all my knowledge of the city, its history, architecture, museums, nature, restaurants, shops and culture. I have visited and enjoyed hospitality in over 100 countries privately or for my work and enjoy meeting people from countries and cultures all around the world. I would like to give you the same warm welcome and wonderful experience that I have so often enjoyed myself.
