The Passage

Monument and Shopping in The Hague

Published: 17 August 2009 Modified: 07 December 2012

The Passage is the only remaining example in Holland in this type of covered shopping streets, popular in major European and American cities in the second half of the 19th century.

The Passage

The Hofweg wing, in expressionist style, was not added to The Passage until 1928. The other two wings, which run to Spuistraat and the Buitenhof, are in Neo-Renaissance style and date from 1882.  

The glass-roofed mall is home to many specialist shops with ultramodern appeal. The imposing historical shopping arcade leads onto the Maison de Bonneterie, a top-rated fashion emporium, and the stylish Hoogstraat and Noordeinde, where you'll find some of the best fashion boutiques, antique shops and galleries.

With its splendid architecture, the experience of being in The Passage is unlike anything you’ll find in modern shopping centres. A day of shopping in The Hague just isn't complete without a visit to The Passage.
