Lessons of Peace and Justice start at an early age

This is the moral behind the Kids Tour in The Hague. Take your kids on the tour and reinforce the life lesson that people in The Hague fight for and defend every day in the International Criminal Court or through the Red Cross.

Featuring sights such as The Peace Palace, Noordeinde Palace and the International Flag Parade, the tour includes facts and stories to reinforce the concept of peace but also to teach children things about the city in which they live.

 

Learn how certain areas in town got their name and why sculptures are positioned in a particular place. You may walk past and admire them every day but do you know the meaning of them and what happened there in the past?
