The Constitution Walk
The Dutch constitution (‘Grondwet’) has played an important part in the history of many places in The Hague. During the walk, you will learn about such matters as the role of the Prison Gate (‘Gevangenpoort’), the background to the Binnenhof and the location of the Grondwetbank.
The Constitution Walk was devised by the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations. The walk is a 1-hour foray into the past, during which everyone gets the opportunity to revisit the history of the Dutch Constitution on the streets of The Hague.
