  • The Hague maybe doesn't offer much to the traveller but this Museum for traveling. Wonderful! With paintings that we admired and studied the books of art history.

  • Number of known masterpieces (girl with Pearl of Vermeer, the Bull of Potter and the anatomy lesson of Rembrandt) in addition to extensive collection. Very nice was the exhibition about the restoration of the lamentation of Rogier van der Weijden and busy seeing the restorer. Special serene atmosphere.

  • The Mauritshuis is a beautiful building from the outside, but also from the inside is gorgeous. The collection of Dutch (and Belgian) master is beautiful! Really worth it (if you like art) to visit.
