Forest
“Haagse Bos literally means The Hague's forest. It is the green gateway to The Hague. The forest consists of an extensive and centuries-old green landscape and is inextricably linked with the rich history of The Hague. The area is approximately 100 hectares in size and runs from Malieveld to the municipality of Wassenaar. There is a central pond that snakes at the centre of the forest. It is the perfect place for running, picnicking beside the water or walking between the beautiful old trees.”
