 The Hague Tower, known to locals as The Flatiron, is a skyscraper located near the Den Haag Hollands Spoor railway station. Inspired by the Flatiron Building in New York City, this skyscraper was constructed on a very small triangular plot of land. This contributed to having the building win the international Emporis Skyscraper Award. In 2014, the World Federation of Great Towers included the building in its list of the world’s great towers.

It was Paul Bontenbal, an architect with AAARCHITECTEN, who saw the potential of this site and initiated the building’s construction. The Hague Tower provides space for living, working and leisure activities. Students reside in its studio flats while many expats live in the more luxurious apartments above. Located at the very top is The Penthouse Restaurant & Sky Bar. During The Hague Architecture Day, you can visit the 40st and 42nd floors and enjoy the fantastic view out over the city and the North Sea!

In addition to this free visit, a peek behind the scenes, and a talk given about the building on this day, you can also take advantage of a special offer of coffee/tea and pastry for €6.
