Are you planning to travel to the Netherlands? The Hague is surely on your ‘to visit’ list. This city, in the province of South Holland, is home to the to the United Nation’s International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. In addition, the Hague has many museums, palaces, and is along the coast offering some fabulous beaches. However, being in Europe, one of the main concerns for Muslim travelers would be the requirement for a Halal food and the location of mosques and prayer places in the vicinity.
The Hague offers many Halal food options, which a Google search will yield. And, surprisingly for me, I found that the Hague has many mosques that Muslim travelers can utilize depending on where they are staying during their visit to Den Haag (the Dutch name for The Hague). So, here’s a list of nearby mosques in The Hague for you to say your Friday prayers or simply tour on your Muslim-friendly tour of The Hague.
