George Maduroplein 1, 2584 RZ The Hague
This miniature park allows you to discover the Madurodamers working, relaxing, watching a football match, and just going about their lives. Check out Madurodam’s fully functionally harbor, trains, and airport. The model city even has carefully manicured gardens made with real flowers and plants at a quarter of real size. All of the important Dutch cities—including Rotterdam, the Hague (with its International Court of Justice), Delft, and Amsterdam (including the Peace Palace)—are rendered in accurate lifelike representations.
You can purchase tickets at the park or in advance. You can also make your way to the miniature town as part of a guided tour; popular options combine a visit to Madurodam with city sightseeing tours of Delft and the Hague.
A visit to Hague
Just an amazing attraction. It was one of the best places I have visited in The Netherlands. I recommend it to everyone.
