St. Nicholas procession through The Hague

St. Nicholas is coming to the Netherlands again! The St. Nicholas procession will be held in Scheveningen again too. With umpteen Black Peters, a court and cavalry, endless music, oodles of sweets and mandarins, St. Nicholas will arrive in the morning by steamboat in Scheveningen Harbour. Then St. Nicholas and his Black Peters and floats will head off through the streets of The Hague, to end up in the centre by the afternoon.

Harbour accessibility 

Due to the crowds that will gather during the procession we recommend you leave your car at home and travel by bike or public transport. If you're coming by public transport there are plenty of tram and bus routes departing from The Hague's Central and Hollands Spoor stations that will take you to Scheveningen.
