The Hague - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Yes, yes, yes. There is much to enjoy in the Netherlands; many places to go, play, eat, drink, socialize. - Feb 2021

All. - Jan 2019

Excellent for everyone. - Feb 2015

I can only speak for families; yes, this is a great environment for a family. Low-crime and high-quality bicycle and public transportation allows kids, tweens, and teens a lot of freedom to travel safely on their own. - Jun 2014

Yes and no. It is a nice city but can be a bit boring for singles. For families it can be nice but the weather is so consistently bad that it puts a damper on family outings. - Apr 2014

Great for everyone! - Jul 2011

I would say yes with a little hesitation - Singles and couples most defintely. Families yes but if your have 3-4 children or more the cost of living will kill you. For example to travel from The Hague to Frankfurt or Paris which is a 4 hr train ride it is roughly USD 400 per person RT so if you have a family of 5 that equates to USD 2k just to travel to destinations 4 hrs away. Hotels are another USD 200 per night so a family of 5 or more can easily spend USD 3-4k on a 4-5 day excursion. Travel via car is almsot as expensive with gas costing USD 7-8 per gallon. - Nov 2010

Yes - for everyone! There is always something to do. - Jul 2010
