The basics

Due to its central location, Square 1813 acts as a convenient point of reference for major attractions in The Hague, including the Mauritshuis, Peace Palace, Escher in The Palace, and the Noordeinde Palace. Most walking, bicycle, and self-guided sightseeing tours in The Hague will quickly stop at the square to discuss the Independence Monument, which depicts statues of William I and allegorical figures representing victory and faith. Like Square 1813, these excursions are a great way to orient oneself to the city for independent exploring.

Things to know before you go

  • Watch out for bicycles in the roundabout. While The Hague is one of the country’s most bike-friendly cities, cyclists aren’t always the friendliest toward pedestrians wandering the bike lane.

  • Because the weather is unpredictable in the Netherlands, it’s best to have a rain jacket or umbrella on hand. Even the sunniest days may include a downpour.

  • If you plan to visit any of the museums near Square 1813, check their opening hours in advance, as many are closed on Mondays and certain holidays.
