‘Peace and Justice' guided tour


In addition to the government, the royal household, Parliament and the ministries, The Hague is also home to many international organisations that are engaged with international law and work to maintain peace. Not surprising, as The Hague is also known in Dutch as the ‘City of Peace and Justice'.

  • Weekday tour (available Tuesday-Friday) (» 6h) 
    ProDemos – International Criminal Court – Humanity House – Yugoslavia Tribunal
  • Weekend tour (available Saturdays and Sundays) (» 5h) 
    ProDemos – Humanity House – Peace Palace
  • Schools tour* (available Mondays) (» 5h)

* Educational institutions only

Fietstocht internationaal recht

Tours are given by experienced ProDemos experts for groups that consist of at least ten participants. The tours are available in English. Because the organisations are not within walking distance of one another, the tour is run using bicycles. Lunch at DuDok or Humanity House can also be incorporated into the programme, as well as other alternatives including visits to the European Police Office (Europol) or the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, if desired.

Please note: The organisations that we visit operate during normal working hours, which means that they are not always able to receive visitors. In such cases, the programme will be adjusted accordingly.

Requesting tours and tour costs

Tours are organised either upon request or via open registration. When requesting tours, it is advisable to do so well in advance (preferably 2 months beforehand). To request a tour, send an email to opmaat@prodemos.nl.

Costs include: entrance to Humanity House (€3.50 p.p.), the tour guide (€42.50/h) and bicycle hire (if necessary, €10.00 p.p.).
