"Free-Market In The Streets" Top 5 Page for this destination Royal The Hague Tip by RoyJava

Royal The Hague, The Hague: 53 reviews and 65 photos

by RoyJava

Just for one day the cities in the Netherlands celebrate the Queens-day on April 30. On that day people in Amsterdam started to offer for sale all sorts of gewgaws, like a fancy-fair. Soon you could buy all kind of things, with bottom-prices.

The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht followed its example and for now you can find open free-market stalls in the street all over the Netherlands. Living right in the center of The Hague "our" street belongs to the very visited and viewed places ... It's crowded, festive, and funny. Funny because you cannot reach your home by car ...

Note: ... see the orange-coloured people, using orange in their clothes (it's the color of the royal family!)
