    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    On this tour you'll meet the beautiful old city centre, where kings reign and some of the world's most famous art is displayed. We'll begin our journey at the Mauritshuis and find out how The Hague grew from a small settlement to the centre of political power in the Netherlands, and end the tour with a stroll along the country's most famous avenue. Along the way, we'll stop by a square that was the site of many executions, a notorious former prison, and I'll point out the best fish-shack in town. The Hague forms a rich part of the Netherlands' history and the characters that people it. Join me to uncover some of these people and their stories.

I invite you to view this Dutch city from my perspective, to see how a simple walk through an area of The Hague shows me how far I’ve come but also how my worlds are closer than I think.
