The Hague’s present redbrick Gothic-style Great Church (Sint-Jacobskerk) replaced a 13th-century wooden church that was destroyed by fire in 1539. Located on Torenstraat, which is named after the church’s six-sided bell tower, it is one of the oldest buildings in Den Haag and had become increasingly run down before extensive renovation work in the 1980s restored it to its former magnificence. It was in this church that many Dutch Royal baptisms took place; King Willem-Alexander was christened here, as was his daughter Catharina-Amalia.

The ornate bell tower is one of the tallest in Holland at 330 feet (100 m), and although it had a famous peal of bells that rang out across Den Haag from 1686 onwards, they disappeared during WWII and were replaced by a new carillon of 51 bells in 1951. The Grote Kerk has an airy vaulted interior, several important memorials and tombs, a decorative carved wooden pulpit and a massive organ dating from 1881. However its finest feature is the glittering stained-glass window sponsored by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who visited Den Haag after the original church burned down in 1539. He is depicted kneeling in prayer before the Virgin Mary.

The Grote Kerk is now deconsecrated and is used for a year-round succession of rock, pop, choral and classical concerts, trade fairs and exhibitions.

Historical Royal Walking Tour in The Hague

Historical Royal Walking Tour in The Hague

star-4.5

I am going to take u back in time, where The Hague was founded. What is the history of the Netherlands, and what role did The Hague have in the history. How did the Dutch royal family came to power and what role do they play in current Holland. These and other stories will be told during the walking tour. The Hague is beautifull and rich in history. A lot of the landmarks are still here. With a guided walking tour u not only know the story behind the buildings but also what the function is today. History of The Hague is Dutch history and I would love to tell u all about it. We walk with small or private groups to have some interaction and flexibilty in the tour. I like to adjust the tour according to the group. I also arrange water and some snacks to have a great morning or afternoon.

With all those (Covid...)-reasons, nowadays, to be disappointed, anxious, edgy... Most important to stay actively positive, don't you think? The good news: LOVE is the answer. That's why in this walk we open - as a start - our eyes more for love. It's all around us: let's be more aware of that! On purpose we walk there where you normally would shop. But now open for loving details: selflove, love towards nature, material, people, community, humanity. How to relate to it? How to keep it alive? Join and you will see: it's before our feet, all around us. More than you thought it was. We just have to see it more, see more, open up more to it. Walking & talking in The Hague's finest historical part: Royal Quarter, full of art, special products and people and details and plans. Good energy. Pretty sure you will start 'looking like this' in your own environment too. Inspiring! Includes a cup of coffee on the go.
