Scheveningen – also part of the wider Scheveningen district – is the ideal neighbourhood for those with a desire for the picturesque combination of the sea, the sand dunes and the beach. As almost 70% of residents are native Dutch, this is the area for feeling truly local. The area is characterized by its diverse landscape. Both the original and the new Scheveningse Forests are located nearby. On the other side, you have the serenity of the dunes and the scenic promenades with numerous water sports options. Wander to the Pier and discover a wide range of entertainment facilities for kids and adults alike. Or head to the impressive Kurhaus Hotel for an eloquent meal with a loved one.
Discover the history of Scheveningen by visiting Beelden aan Zee and Scheveningen museums. In the colder or rainier moments, discover Scheveningen from a completely different perspective. The brilliant Panorama Mesdag in the Zeeheldenkwartier transports you to the dunes and the beach of 1881 with its 360-degree vision of the area. The connected harbours are another major attraction. Whether you wish to visit the “rough around the edges” hub of the fishing industry and buy local produce or prefer to overlook beautiful yachts over a glass of champagne and gourmet dishes, all these are at your doorstep. Don’t miss the infamous Simonis restaurant chain and fish monger, which serves and sells the freshest produce in numerous unique settings.
The shopping area on Keizerstraat offers the option of both small specialty shops and major supermarkets.house rules / manual general provisions
