As well as the Dutch state galleriesThe Hague is full of thriving commercial galleries.

The streets to explore include Toussaintkade, Tasmanstraat, Denneweg, Westeinde and Noordeinde. T
ype the street name and 'art gallery' into Google to find them. Check the opening times before you go.


The venerable De Rijk Fine Art is at Noordeinde 95. It specialises in art concret with a roster of artists inspired by the Dutch ZERO/NUL (1958-1966) movement. Art bought here is likely to keep and appreciate its value as art.
