What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Binnenhof is both the geographic and historic heart of the city, in addition to being home to the Dutch Parliament. This view from the Hofvijver pond in the city center looks toward the Parliament house and is a great example of The Hague's old-meets-new aesthetic. The stately light tan structure on the left is the Mauritshuis museum, where the renowned painting "Girl with the Pearl Earring" by painter Johannes Vermeer is housed when it's not on traveling exhibitions. Due to renovation work the Mauritshuis is currently closed until mid-2014. Most of the Mauritshuis collection can be seen at the Gemeentemuseum. The tower directly beside the Mauritshuis has been the Dutch prime minister's office since 1982.More info: Mauritshuis
