The climate of The Hague (the Netherlands)
The Hague is the country’s royal seat and seat of the Dutch
government. The Queen works at Noordeinde Palace in The Hague. This
city is also the seat of the International Court of Justice, the
International Criminal Court and the Yugoslavia Tribunal. Because of
all these important and international organizations the Hague is
crowded with governmental officials. This also means you can have a
very nice lunch, dinner, drink or coffee in one of the many cafes,
restaurants and bistros. There is always something to do in The Hague.
Even on the rainiest day there are demonstrations on the square facing
the Dutch Lower Chamber (‘Second Chamber’). Because The Hague is
situated very close to the sea the climate is strongly influenced by
the sea, even more so than in other places in the Netherlands. This
also means temperatures are slightly higher here than in the rest of
the country. Because of the constant sea wind clouds dissolve rapidly
and when rain does fall this is usually short lived.

Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
information for each month of the year:
