Now that Summer is still around - Let's combine visiting of the WW2 bunkers with a short hiking adventure in the dunes and have a picnic and some Frisbee time on the beaches of the Kijkdunes in the Hague area. We will end up our Sunday outdoor trip in an relaxed setting of a beach club while attending the FREE Live Jazz session and having a yummy meal. I've heard their kitchen is delicious, all home made food prepared with love.

After our morning coffee at the terrace of the Protected content we will make a move towards the sets of the bunkers from the WW2 - afterwards we will continue our trip with a hike in the dunes of the Kijkduin and beach. Have a picnic, Frisbee time and head towards our live jazz session.

TIME: 11.30

Bunker visit at the noon - approx. 1 hr - ENTREE euro 3.- in CASH
Near the boulevard of Kijkduin, under the dunes, lies is a hidden tunnel system from the WW2, connecting four bunkers. This part of the complex housed the Flugwache, a part of the Luftwaffe that had to search the skies for enemy aircraft. A total of approximately 80 meters of tunnels and four bunkers are now accessible and are open only a few days in a year. Since Protected content tunnel system is open for visitors. For safety reasons, the visitors will always be accompanied by a guide.

Hiking - We will walk about 7 km of trails within the dunes and along the beach front (barefoot).
Duration: the hike itself will take around Protected content . This is a rough estimate and as we go with the flow, it might take more or less time.

Duration of the Jazz session: it starts at 5pm and we can stay there until we enjoy it. I would like to leave myself not later than 8pm, in order to catch up the train at the Hague Central at 9.03pm but of course you are free to leave before or after ;-)
