If you are travelling to The Hague, you will likely land at Schiphol International Airport on arriving in The Netherlands. Schiphol Airport is situated between Amsterdam (approximately 15 kilometres north of the airport) and The Hague (in Dutch, Den Haag) which lies approximately 40 kilometres south of the airport. From Schiphol Airport you can reach The Hague either by taxi or by train.
A taxi from Schiphol Airport to The Hague Central or IRC Head Quarters will cost between € 60 and € 80. IRC will not reimburse taxi costs, this would be on your expense.

Travelling by public transport in the Netherlands is easy with reasonable fares. A one-way ticket from Schiphol Airport to Den Haag is € 9.30. You can buy the tickets from the many machines in the train station and instructions are available in several languages. Payment is in euros only.
Direct trains to The Hague Central Station (Den Haag Centraal) leave every 30 minutes from Schiphol Airport Train Station at 57 and 27 minutes past the hour. The trains (sneltrein) to The Hague Central Station leave from platforms 5 and 6 and the journey takes around 35 minutes. Stopping trains also depart to Den Haag Central every 15 minutes but you may have to change trains at Leiden.

Information on arrivals and departures is also available on the large yellow billboards in front of the Railway Station and on the platforms or from the Information desks in the station.
Internationally, The Hague is widely recognised as the city of peace and justice, with the Peace Palace, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY)and the International Criminal Court all located in the centre of the city.
However, the true history of The Hague starts in the Middle Ages. The past comes to life as you stroll along the alleys and interconnecting canals, past stately mansions and through quiet courts. Unlike most Dutch cities situated at the junction of roads and waterways, The Hague did not arise as a trade centre.
Our beautiful city has many historical buildings and many fine museums. The Binnenhof is a 13th century hunting lodge established for the Counts of Holland that is the heart of The Netherland’s political life and is the official seat of government. The Knight’s Hall, or Ridderzaal is located within the Binnenhof and a guided tour is highly recommended. The nearby 17th century building known as the Mauritshuis – formerly a palace and now a museum - houses a collection of some of the world’s finest paintings from artists such as Vermeer, Hals and Rembrandt. The Kunstmuseum (art museum) has an extensive collection of modern and applied arts as well as fashion and music.
