Walking tour along The Hague's almshouses

Although they are now almost forgotten oases of peace in the busy city center of The Hague, a quarter of the population of The Hague still lived in a courtyard 150 years ago. With more than 100 hidden courtyards, The Hague is truly a 'court city'. During this city walk (every Tuesday and Thursday at 13:30) a guide from the Guild of The Hague will take you along the most famous and most beautiful courtyards. Hidden spots, hard to see from the street. In the past poor and old people lived for free in the courtyards because it served as a form of care for the elderly and social housing. Today residents enjoy the peace and quiet that can be found next to the busy life in the city.
