The Hague Expat Guide
A Royal City of Festivals
As the seat of the government and official residence of the Royal family, as well as home to the International Court of Justice, The Hague, capital of the Haaglanden region on the West Coast, has often been referred to as the "legal capital of the world" and thus presents legal, judicial, and political career opportunities. Other industries for expats include the oil and gas industry, aerospace, media, software design, science, research, and telecommunications. Obtaining a work permit can be complicated for those from outside of the EU, so check our guide on working in The Hague for more details.
Cuisine in The Hague takes advantage of the city's multicultural nature, with international food sold at the Haagse Markt and Chinese dishes available in nearby Chinatown. Traditional Dutch Cuisine is typically made up of vegetables, meat and fish. Cheese and bread are breakfast staples and Snert, a thick pea soup, provides a comforting defense against chilly winters.
The Hague is also known as the number one Dutch festival city; take advantage by attending the spectacular International Fireworks Festival and enjoy dancing to Jazz on the Canal festival. Shopping Night sees fashion shows and large discounts throughout the city until midnight, and for local color go along to Vlaggetjesdag, a festival celebrating the arrival of the first herring to the city.
