The Hague, International City of Peace and Justice: third largest city in the Netherlands, official seat of the Crown and Government, home to hundreds of international organisations and multinationals, and one of the world's top three UN cities.
With a population of 500,000 inhabitants The Hague is strategically located in the western part of the Netherlands, in the heart of one of Europe's largest urban centres, with excellent connections by rail, road and the internet to the rest of the Netherlands and Europe. With two international airports within easy reach, Rotterdam-The Hague International Airport and Schiphol (Amsterdam) International Airport, The Hague's strategic location and accessibility is even further enhanced.
The Hague is a city with a pleasant cosmopolitan atmosphere and style. Its rich diversity of living environments and ideal mix of cultural and social facilities offers something for everyone. As the largest coastal city on the shores of the North Sea, with an impressive third of the total surface area being green, The Hague is a unique urban environment.
The excellent infrastructure, international business climate, top quality educational facilities and the high quality of life, combined with the favourable Dutch tax regime, make The Hague one of the most attractive cities in Europe to set up a business. The presence of international companies such as Shell International, T-Mobile, and Siemens are testament to this.
