Welcome to Waterkant !

Alternative to the crowds of seaside boulevards, try nearby ‘Waterkant’ -Water’s Edge-. Our little ponton ferries you across as you enter the most beautiful grass terrace of The Hague. Due to the south facing secluded setting, the temperature is often several degrees higher than the rest of town. You can also enter through the park. Waterkant is situated in the middle of the Rose Garden in the Westbroekpark.

Opening hours

We are open daily from King’s Day to Prinsjesdag to the third Tuesday in September = opening Dutch parliamentary year, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Our terrace might open sooner, from April 1st onwards. Weather permitting we stay open till half October.

Besides rowing boats, picnics, lunches, drinks and dinners, supping (stand up paddle) and bunker exhibitions, this oasis just outside the city is also an ideal place for your wedding ceremony, outdoor meeting, party or event. Our floating terrace max. 12 people/ 1000 kilo’s with or without skipper, makes every company outing a special experience!

Terrace and Take Away

Enjoy our lawn by ordering your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks from our regular menu, also see our daily specials. Or opt for take away: coffees, teas, juices, cakes and homemade sweets. See: menu card.


A very nice experience is to reserve a picnic basket with us. You can combine this with two hours of rowing or take it to the park. We have a two persons Picnic and a Children’s Picnic. Of course you can also just order the sandwiches from the lunch menu or a bottle of wine and take it with you.

For the Picnic menu see menus.


There is an old bunker on our site. We use these for small indoor parties and regular art exhibitions. Free entry is daily from 10 a.m. to closing.
