Den Haag or The Hague is a city in the Netherlands. It is located in the province of Zuid Holland. After Amsterdam and Rotterdam it's the 3rd largest city in the Netherlands. Scheveningen used to be a seperate municipality, but is now part of the city of Den Haag.
The liftershalte, a spot for hitchhiking at the beginning of the A12 next to the (north-eastern edge of) Malieveld is great when you're going in the direction of Utrecht. It could also work when going north towards Amsterdam or south towards Rotterdam and Belgium. The official sign is removed and replaced with a regular bus stop sign. But there is still plenty of space for cars to stop, and many cars pass by every minute. Probably takes you maximum 30minutes to get out, as long as you have a good sign.
To get there from the Den Haag CS (the central station), walk along the Koningskade in north-western direction until you see the Malieveld (big grass field) on your right. The spot is right across the field on the other side.
