Antique and Book Market
Published: 17 May 2011 Modified: 07 May 2013
The Hague’s city centre has a lovely and a characteristic Antique and Book Market. In the summer you can visit the market twice a week on the stately Lange Voorhout. In the winter you’ll find a smaller-scale book market once a week on the Plein.
From mid-May until mid-September some 77 stalls display all kinds of antiques, curiosities and collectibles such as special glassware, paintings, antique furniture, porcelain and silver. The market is great for browsing around whether you’re looking for that first edition of your favourite novel, books about art, nature or transport or old prints and engravings. On Sunday there is also a small art market.
The combination of specialised and general stalls makes this market greatly appealing to a wide audience. It’s also the perfect spot to enjoy a drink or light bite at one of the sidewalk cafes under the linden trees along the Lange Voorhout.
The market on the Plein is smaller than the Antique and Book Market on the Lange Voorhout. This market has approximately 45 stalls selling books and prints.
The Antique and Book Market is held on the Lange Voorhout every Thursday and Sunday from 10.00 to 18.00 hrs. from mid-May until mid-September. From mid-September to mid-May it can be found on Thursdays from 10.00 to 18.00 hrs. on the Plein.
