"Laan Van Meerdervoort" Top 5 Page for this destination Scheveningen / Kijkduin beach Tip by RoyJava

by RoyJava

When going from The Hague's center, for a drive to Loosduinen - Kijkduin (beach area) the best way is via Laan van Meerdervoort. This beautiful long street has been built with houses directed Loosduinen - Kijkduin from 1875 and about 1960 when completed, Laan van Meerdervoort had become Europe's largest street!

See the magnificence of several classic styles of architecture like Art Nouveau, Neo-Gothic and Eclecticisme, which was a reaction upon Neo-Gothic. At my photograph you see the famous Neo-Classicism from 18th century, created by The Hague architect J. Olthuis (1851-1921). It's mixed with Belgian-French Art Nouveau tile scenes ...

A bit furtheron you'll find the "Haganum Gymnasium" in Neo-Renaissance style. And it is nice to know that the Albert Heijn supermarkt at the corner is open in the late evenings ...

Address: Laan van Meerdervoort, The Hague
