Walking the streets of Den Haag

Next morning we woke up after an okay night sleep in the hotel room. The room had been a bit cold; I think we were the first users of it in a long time. You sense that quite fast when you enter a room; no heating and smell of still water. We went down to the breakfast which was a pleasant surprise; the restaurant was nicely renovated and it was spacious and welcoming.

The choices were good and there were a fast service. The only thing I found too much was the price that had passed the 20€; which I always find way too much for a breakfast; well except once in Barcelona at the Eurostar Grand Marina Hotel Barcelona, but that is another story.

We checked out soon thereafter and just wandered the streets before the shops opened. The inner-city was very well preserved as many Dutch city, well almost all I know anyway. The old houses are wonderful to look at and the shop windows are beautiful decorated as well. One thing that strikes me is that there always is an undertone of late 60es and a hippie sense to many shops and cafés. My guess is that this comes from the Dutch relaxing attitude towards hashes and from the coffeeshop environment.

The city centre woke slowly up and the shops opened an people started to fill the streets and bringing life to the city. We kept on enjoying the city for many hours, just looking and enjoying.
