With Christmas time the neighbourhood of "Moerweg" in The Hague is a very popular place to do your shoppings. It is because here the original The Hague spheres still survived and the people around love to have a little chat with you ...

If you do like honey there is a wonderful small place where you can buy one of the finest and utmost fresh honey.

What to buy: He knows all about his honey bees and, you may ask any question. He just returned from Japan (in September 2007) where he joined a congress about ... bees and Japanese flowers!
You can buy some really delicious honey of different seasons (I do love the "Balsemien" honey of the autumns).

See here the Prinsestraat, one of the oldest, and smallest shopping-streets of The Hague. Usually the Prinsestraat is connected with the way to visit the Palace and its Royal Garden and Stables (Prinsessewal). This street has been named after Prince William II, constructed around 1610.
My point of view is the Kantoorvakhandel Berlage (Prinsestraat 1-3), a beautiful Berlage building from 1895, where you may enter the Prinsestraat. From there have a look back and enjoy the great view at St. Jacobs Church (Grote Kerk). And see the splendid statues of females at the front of the building!
Female Statue - Public Women
What to buy: You'll find a great variety of restaurants and cafes. The best known establishment is Cremers Coffeeshop (Prinsestraat 84) and, Brasserie Surakarta (Prinsestraat 13) is well-known for its Indonesian delicious food (see link). At the theatre, named KORZO, you may watch Dutch and cultural, international plays (Prinsestraat 42).
Find the Dischi Records (low recordshops, Prinsestraat 43) and, Gabriell Clothing (Prinsestraat 73A) with tip-top self-made clothes. At Gabriell Clothing and HYPE (Prinsestraat 4) you can get the hottest party-times tickets. PUCK food and wines (Prinsestraat 33) got known for its "non-smoking sections", so this place is a real gift for non-smokers. Some galleries, a great flower-shop and shops with little nick-nacks you can find, too ...
What to pay: You can find some cheap things, you can find some very expensive ...

To me the small Piet Heinstraat/street, starting from beautiful Piet Heinplein (see pic) is one of the cosiest shopping areas outside the centre of The Hague. This is the so named "Zeeheldenkwartier", street area of the Dutch sea-hero's like Piet Hein, just in opposite of the Royal Gardens and -Stables (see link). There are some very nice shoppings and Art Nouveau is found here, some great antique shops, friendly coffee-shops and some New-Age shops ...
What to buy: Take a look at “Supermarkt Moskou”, it's the first Russian shop in The Hague which is specialized in genuine Russian food and drinks, books and videos,Babushkas and several other things ...
