Christmas market The Hague 2024


Set against the historic backdrop of The Hague city centre, a fairytale transformation is unveiled every December: the Royal Christmas Fair. This annual event on the majestic Lange Voorhout has become a staple, recognised as one of the Netherlands' most beautiful Christmas markets. And this year, its eighth edition promises to be more dazzling than ever before!

Magical Moments for All

As you step into the market, you're greeted by the warm glow of thousands of LED lights and the cheerful hum of excited visitors. Dozens of Christmas stalls offer an array of festive treats, handmade gifts, and seasonal specials. And of course, no Christmas market is complete without the enticing aroma of freshly made mulled wine. As you enjoy your warm beverage, you might even bump into Santa Claus himself, making regular appearances throughout.

A Celebration of Culture and Tradition

But the Royal Christmas Fair isn't just a market. It's also a celebration of Christmas traditions and culture. An extensive programme featuring Christmas choirs, talented storytellers, and lively musical performances adds extra magic to the experience. And for the little ones, there are plenty of children's activities to both entertain and enchant.

In short, the Christmas Market in The Hague is the perfect place to kick off the festive season and immerse yourself in the Christmas spirit!
