Ooievaart The Hague and the House of Orange

The Hague is the city of the royal family and has been the residence of the van Oranje-Nassau family for about four centuries. At the request of Prince Maurits, the canals around the center were dug exactly 400 years ago to ward off the Spaniards. On this trip over those canals, we reflect on the royal spurs in The Hague. The boat sails past the Royal Stables and the Palace Gardens.

Open boats 

Due to the bridge heights, De Ooievaart sails with open boats. In case of rain, ponchos are available on the tour boats. In addition, it is not possible to take wheelchairs, prams and rollators on board. These can be parked at the harbor office on Bierkade.


Boarding point 

The boat trips depart from Bierkade 18b in the center of The Hague. It is advised to arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour. 



It is recommended to make a reservation in advance for the boat trip, especially on weekends and when the weather is nice. Tickets are for sale via the website of De Ooievaart, by telephone on 070-4451869 and at the counter of The Hague Info Store (The Hague Central Station)


De Ooievaart is located in the center of The Hague on the Bierkade. The boarding point is at the harbor office. The boarding point is a five-minute walk from The Hague Hollands Spoor Station and ten minutes from Central Station. In addition, several trams and buses stop nearby. De Ooievaart The Hague is also easily accessible by car. It is, however, smarter and cheaper to park your car in a parking garage nearby.
