Registration is free, see below.

The Hague in a Nutshell / Den Haag in een notendop



In this new edition of Dutch up! we are finally covering ‘our’ city! Dive with us into the fascinating history of Den Haag, The Hague or ‘s-Gravenhage, however you prefer to call it. The Hague is not the capital of the Netherlands, but with a résumé this impressive, one would definitely think it was! It is the residence of the Dutch national parliament, for instance. The Hague is also known as the ‘international city of peace and justice’ as it is the hometown of the U.N.’s International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, among other courts and tribunals.


In deze nieuwe editie van Dutch up! duiken we eindelijk in de geschiedenis van onze thuisstad Den Haag. Den Haag heeft een indrukwekkend cv. Je zou bijna denken dat het de hoofstad van Nederland was! De Nederlandse regering en het parlement zijn er gevestigd, en het is de residentie van het koninklijk huis. Daarnaast huisvest de stad vele nationale en internationale rechtscolleges, waaronder het Internationaal Gerechtshof, en het Internationaal Strafhof.
