Published: 29 October 2012 Modified: 29 October 2012
The Hague has set out a 60-kilometre route connecting nearly all of the city’s parks and country estates.
The Park Route (Parkenroute) is made up of three parts:
1. northeastern part (22 km) through The Hague city centre, Zorgvliet and Scheveningen;
2. western part (20 km) through Kijkduin, Loosduinen and Ockenburgh;
3. southwestern part (19 km) through Loosduinen, Ockenburgh, Zuiderpark and the Uithof
The booklet helps you to discover the Parkenroute, designed by the Fietsersbond (Dutch Cyclists’ Union). The bicycle is an ideal mode of transport for exploring your surroundings in a healthy and environmentally-friendly friendly way. The route is ideal for both local residents and visitors to the city and takes cyclists along the many parks and gardens of The Hague. The booklet describes the historical value of these parks and country estates.
The bicycle route is marked by small yellow signs with a stork.
You can purchase the route booklet at the Tourist Information Office (VVV). The booklet can also be downloaded as a PDF below.
