Wild Rooster Festival
The Grote Markt in the city centre of The Hague will again be one big 'burning ring of fire' with the Wild Rooster Festival. With a great line-up of music and the best barbecue food, this grilling party has become a big-sized festival. Make sure to poke a few extra holes in your belt because this year you will want to feast on juicy burgers, sausages and extra large beef ribs from the smoker, with iced-cold beer, delicious potatoes, corn on the cob and more.
The Grote Markt in the city centre of The Hague is a former market square surrounded by bars and clubs. On the Grote Markt (literally 'Great Market') the atmosphere is welcoming and the crowd is mainly creative, alternative and bohemian. From early in the morning, until late at night you'll find people having a good time here. Throughout the year there are lots of activities taking place in the middle of the square.
The Hague city centre is easy to reach by car, public transport and bike. Grote Markt can be accessed via the tram tunnel on various trams from Central Station. Grote Markt is a fifteen-minute walk from The Hague Central Station or Station Hollands Spoor. As an alternative to parking under Grote Marktstraat, you can also leave your car at Spui, Centrum and Turfmarkt car parks. You will also find a free secure bicycle parking facility in Grote Marktstraat.
