December is a month in which the shop windows look amazing, the many lights create a festive atmosphere and lots of people search for gifts and fancy clothing to celebrate the holidays. This creates a cozy, but busy city center. And every area in the city center has its own atmosphere with shops for any budget. The winter terraces adds up to the festive season and joyful spirits. Whether you are looking for a royal ambiance or modern and smooth, a mix of cultures or typically Dutch: the city center of The Hague has it all!
