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.

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!
