'Welcome to The Hague' programme

Published: 12 August 2013 Modified: 12 August 2013

The City of The Hague cordially invites you and your family to our 'Welcome to The Hague' programme held six times a year in The Hague International Centre.

Welcome to The Hague program

The morning is organised to help give you a better understanding of the city, and especially how The Hague International Centre can make your stay more comfortable. It will also give you an opportunity to broaden your network of contacts and meet other expatriates.

The programme includes a welcome speech, an introduction to the website, a brief description of ACCESS, a tour of The Hague Public Library, a walking tour of The Hague's historic city centre, coffee and cake and a welcome package.

While the event will be of particular interest to new residents of The Hague, residents of surrounding towns are of course welcome, as are children, although no special children’s programme will be organised.


'Today’s expat’s introductory was fantastic. It was full of important facts covering areas of history to present day requirements for our daily lives.' Stephen Caruana, Australia

'I was amazed how much I learned in terms of the history of The Hague. The tour to The Hague city centre was very good and interesting. I’d definitely recommend it to all new residents!' Willieth Mussa, Tanzania

'As always Dutch hospitality is so nice. The new website looks terrific!' Aulle, France
