After two years of absence, the Royal Christmas Fair will take place again at the beautiful Lange Voorhout in The Hague, from Thursday 8 to Friday 23 December. For sixteen days, this largest multi-day Christmas market in the Netherlands settles in the middle of the historic center of The Hague. The Royal Christmas Fair is free and open daily from 12 noon – 9 pm.
Just around the corner from the Binnenhof, Noordeinde Palace, embassies, museums and attractive shopping areas such as Denneweg, de Plaats, Hofkwartier and Noordeinde the Royal Christmas Fair will take place. With dozens of Christmas houses, illuminated by 100,000 twinkling LED lights in the trees and the beautiful surroundings, this Christmas market of international allure guarantees the ultimate Christmas atmosphere. The Christmas market is very popular with the expat community, and for a reason. Steaming mulled wine, crackling fires and cozy music guarantee a great Christmas experience.
Crafts and quality
The Royal Christmas Fair distinguishes itself by the many high-quality and traditional products for sale in the cozy Christmas houses. Visitors can also indulge themselves at the various food trucks and cozy bars scattered around the market. The one and only Santa Claus is present every day for photo opportunities with children and adult. All this makes The Hague Christmas market an unmissable experience.
Have a Royal Winter
The entire city center of The Hague breathes Christmas this period and is therefore the ideal destination for a day of shopping. With winter events and activities, The Hague gives its visitors a warm welcome during Have a Royal Winter, despite the cool temperatures and dark days.
The Hague Christmas market is easily accessible by car, bicycle and public transport and within walking distance of Central Station. The entrances are at the Kloosterkerk (corner Parkstraat/Lange Voorhout), Hotel Des Indes (Denneweg) and Tournooiveld.
