The Hague’s international organisations work hard to make the world a safer and better place. Of course, this work goes on behind closed doors within the walls of the many international organisations that have a home in this city, such as the International Criminal Court, Eurojust, OPCW, and the courts in the Peace Palace. One day each year, you can visit these unique institutions. This year, The Hague International Open Day takes place on Sunday 23 September.

Admission is free. It’s no longer possible to register.

Security

Most organisations have strict security. Because of this, we have added a list of the DO’s and DON’Ts for you. As a visitor, you’ll be required to follow these. You will receive your security passes a week beforehand via e-mail. We ask you to please bring it with you. The security of the organisations can ask you to show your passes. Although the chance is there that registration will be enough and you will not be asked to show your pass. At all times you are required to bring a legal personal ID, like a passport of a ID-Card. Bus-, library, etc. cards are not valid identification. Security checks take time, so please keep this in mind when visiting. We ask for your patience for any eventual waiting times.

  • Bring a your admission ticket (print or online version)
