The Hague



The plane is the best solution coming from outside the Netherlands. The Rotterdam International Airport it is located just over 20 kilometers away from the city, from which it is well connected by public transport. Outside the arrivals hall, there is a bus station. You will have to use the 33 line to get to Meijersplein, from which the E line of the underground to the Hague starts. The bus journey takes about 7 minutes; the metro, instead, takes about 25 minutes to arrive at your destination. The ticket costs just over €4.00 at full fare.

Alternatively, you can rent directly at the airport, your car. From the airport, continue north along the A13 for about 25 minutes.


Den Haag CS, It is the city’s main railway station, the largest railway track in the Netherlands. Interchange of urban buses and trams, it is also the terminus of the E underground line with which Rotterdam is connected.

The connections are limited to the Netherlands only, through Intercity and Sprinter trains; the latter are trains that make all stops along their route. The train remains a good solution for connections within the country. Anyone wishing to travel by train can use Amsterdam as a reference point. Every day, two Intercity connections with the Capital are guaranteed.


The Hague is well connected via the motorway network. From Amsterdam, north of the city, the distance is about 65 kilometers, most of them on A4. Rotterdam, to the southeast, can be reached by traveling around the 25 kilometers on A13. You always cross the A4 from Belgium: Brussels is about 180 kilometers.

Further south, Paris is less than 500 kilometers, most of which can be traveled on A1. From Berlin, the distance from the Dutch city is about 716 kilometers.

The car remains a viable option for exploring the Hague and the Netherlands. A fascinating journey through landscapes and beautiful cities. If your destination is exclusively The Hague, we recommend leaving the car at home.
