In the centre of The Hague is The Old City Hall which is a hugely attractive building of Renaissance style. It used to be where the city’s government was based but it is still used for ceremonies. The building was built in 1565 and was considered large and imposing at the time it was built. It is still very imposing and impressive but may have inadvertently been slightly sidelined in a city that has a huge array of fine buildings and sights to be seen.

This building is in the center of old town. It’s a very cool looking old building. The design has a lot of detail and I enjoyed seeing it.

The building is still in use as I've noticed. It is also located close to the Central Railway Station, and right in front of it you can spot one big old Cathedral which is from the 18th or 19th century, if I remember well.
The Old City Hall is a marvelous mix from two different buildings from different periods merged together. Worth the visit :)

The old Cityhall is a building that consists of two parts, from different periods in time that are now melted together. It looks nice, but you can't access it as a tourist attraction. I've passed it many times, but to be honest no clue what is inside nowadays. Still nice for a few pictures and it is in the old center anyway not for from other attractions such as the Binnenhof (all walking distance).

The Old City Hall is an old building. So old, in fact, its beginnings go as far back as the 16th century. It is a lovely Renaissance style building and adds colour and character not only to the area but the whole city.
