Guided Tour Archipel

The Archipel area in The Hague is worthwhile a visit. Large mansions and small courtyards within a short distance of each other. And two interesting and beautifully designed cemeteries. 

What’s up

During this guided tour through the Archipel district in The Hague I will tell you about this interesting 19th century extension to the city. I will show you the buildings and tell you about the architecture and the people that lived and worked here. Or are buried at the cemeteries.

The Hague - Archipel

My family has lived in the Archipelbuurt for three years, and we never even knew what was across the street – in our case, a hofje! Jacqueline is a thoroughly knowledge guide. It was a privilege to learn about the origins of our home and daily environment – how else would I have known that the block of flats down the road used to be an army barracks, or that the residential neighbourhood near the church used to be used to catch migratory birds? Why do people even catch migratory birds? Luckily, with Jacqueline, all of these questions – and more – were fielded expertly. There's something reassuring, rooting, in understanding that the architect who built the houses down the street also built the Passage. Or that the Anglican church was built because the RAF (accidentally) bombed the old one. History suddenly catches up with the present, until every day you are walking through a living museum. You do not know a city until you know who built it. And you don't know who built it until you are guided through The Hague..
