A short moment of peace and amazement in the chapel. Not even many locals know this.

“Scheveningen's Lourdes Grotto, a historic monument in the heart of Scheveningen, is worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

The Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel (Lourdeskapel) is located at Berkenbosch Blokstraat 9a in the distinctive turn of the century registered landmark known as the "Kropholler Complex". The complex was designed by A.J. Kropholler and features the Lourdeskerk (OL van Lourdes Church), the Lourdes Grotto, a parsonage and 17 houses.

The Lourdes Grotto is open daily from 9am - 6pm and the entrance to the chapel can be found at the base of the clock tower. The Grotto, which was completely renovated in 1999, in preparation for the new millenium as a result of the generosity of an anonymous donor, features a unique 1:13 scale replica of the Lourdes Grotto in Massabielle, France.
