Get to know The Hague on your feet! Explore The Hague during a city running tour in the liberation year 2020.

The Hague is the international city of justice and peace. This reflects in its institutions, such as the International Court of Justice in the Peace Palace, the International Criminal Court and the United Nationals Detention Unit in Scheveningen, where among others Radovan Karadžić is detained (see photo above). This city running tour includes these well known institutions as well as places that still echoe World War II, the silent witnesses. The tour also goes beyond the highlights, and shows the colonial past and how this is still present in nowadays The Hague.

City running in The Netherlands and Europe

Travelling through The Netherlands and other European countries? Join one of the many other running tours. I especially enjoyed:

Interested in the Second World War? Visit World War II in music, a previous project by MusicForce/Nicole Janssen (limited pages in English). The music, articles, films, photos, and numerous documents tell of the power and powerlessness of music, of life and survival with music.
