Scheveningen

When we were in Scheveningen I took some photo's to share with you. Here you see "the Pier".

Scheveningen, a part of The Hague, is the largest beach resort of the Netherlands which is visited yearly by more than ten millions visitors from both home and foreign countries. The long, broad promenade and the Pier have many attractions and public places.

The Pier, together with the Kurhaus, is the important eye-catcher of Scheveningen. From the Pier you have a splendid view over both the North sea and the Scheveningen promenade. The promenade on the Pier has two floors, a covered one and an open air promenade. At the end of the Pier you will find a restaurant, a casino, a childrens playgound, Bungy Jump and Sling shot. In front of the Pier is the Kurhaus: hotel and restaurant, built in 1885, in neo-renaissance style.

This is the Kurhaus as seen from the seaside.

And here is the Kurhaus as seen from the otherside.
