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 www.thehague.nl, 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, people living in Delft, Leidschendam-Voorburg, Rijswijk, Wassenaar and the surrounding region are welcome to attend. Children may also attend although no special children’s programme will be organised.


Participation in the Welcome to The Hague programme is free of charge but registration is required. Please register online via register.access-nl.org to attend. To learn about upcoming programmes, you can subscribe to The Hague Newsletter.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Hague!
