What to do on the Weekend?
This teeny-tiny museum is one of the best hidden gems in The Hague. Come see the biggest, most astounding masterpiece by Hendrik Willem Mesdag, a 360-degree panorama painting. Feel like you are inside it and let yourself get carried away. Awe is guaranteed! Along with the panorama, the small museum contains additional works by Mesdag, plus other special exhibits. Come on by! https://panorama-mesdag.nl/
Scheveningen Beach Bars/Restaurants
It is March. And what does that mean? The Scheveningen Beach Clubs are now open! With 50 restaurants to choose from, sit on the sandy terraces, or inside at a sea-view table for a diverse selection of cuisines and atmospheres. Stroll along the boulevard, then pop in anywhere for a drink, an hors d-oeuvre, or a hearty meal. If the kids aren't hungry, they can play in the sand while you munch and sip--many of the clubs have their own playground equipment. As the days get warmer, you can also rent beach lounge-chairs for the whole family. It's the busiest boardwalk in northern Europe, so banish those winter blues by heading to the beach! Check out this map selection or visit the official Beach Club website.
