Environmental zone The Hague - The Netherlands

Situated on the North Sea, The Hague lies in the western part of the Netherlands and is capital of the Dutch province of South Holland. The Hague is not only seat of government of the Netherlands, but also the seat of the Royal Family. It is considered the world capital of jurisdiction. With a population of 537,400 inhabitants on an area of only 98.12 km², the municipality is the third largest city in the Netherlands.

The city does not officially have the status of city because it did not acquire it in the Middle Ages and in the 19th century the distinction between village and city had no legal significance.

The environmental zone entered into force on 16.04.2008.
