About The Hague

The Hague (officially ‘s-Gravenhage) is a fast growing city with nearly 550,000 inhabitants (2021). It is the 3rd largest city in the Netherlands after Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Although The Hague is not the constitutional capital of the country, it is the official seat of the royal family and the government. It is also the capital of the province of South Holland.

The Hague has many faces: international city of peace and justice, Royal residence, European city and multicultural hub. Most foreign embassies, Dutch ministries and the Supreme Court (Hoge Raad) are located in The Hague. As the International City of Peace and Justice, it plays host to a large number of international tribunals, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, as well as hundreds of international organisations, European agencies such as Europol and Eurojust, and NGOs.
