Family Things to do in Scheveningen / The Hague

Possible Easter break by the seaside.

I assume the European Court of Justice has an exciting child friendly soft play based on a theme of global human rights violations, but apart from that, what can we get up to?

How old are the children, DH? If they're not too young, I'd recommend a visit to the Prison Museum in the Hague: https://gevangenpoort.nl/en/homepage

I'll admit I've not been there for a long time, but the Madurodam was rather impressive for a model village: https://www.madurodam.nl/en

Shave a schnauzer.

Kids are six and eight. Thanks for the ideas. I may buy a guidebook also.

6/8? Three to the pound, there.

Borrow some bikes and potter around the coast?

The Escher Museum is rather fun (that main staircase is a nightmare to find your way out of though).

We cycled as a family down the coast past the Hague years ago. I can't remember much now, but Madurodam and the beaches were good fun.

It's a bit of a memory lane trip, my dad worked at the European Space Agency as a contractor for a few months in the 80s. He had a flat in Norwijk, and we went over during half term (I was a bored teenager dreaming up sci-fi plots set on a very long beach).

Late to thread, but Duinrell, both the outdoor rides and the waterpark flumes, are enormous fun.

If you want to rent bikes, which you may be able to do at Duinrell, you could possibly cycle up (yes there’s a hill) to the dunes and beach, where there are some on beach cafes. Well there were, when I lived in Wassenaar, 30 years ago,

Ah yes, thanks all.

All booked now. Us, the kids, my mum and dad too.

Try the Book People.

Travel book thieving syndicates set up on trestle tables near stations: where are they now?

I enjoyed wandering around here, but can’t imagine it would interest many children:
