As the unofficial capital of the Netherlands The Hague has always had an attraction to secret agents, spies and shady characters. Join the ‘The Hague Spy Walk’ and hear more about them. Walk together with historian Edwin Ruis through pretty 'off-the-track' neighbourhoods along addresses of spies and secret services. Hear what they were up to and how they ended.
The ‘The Hague Spy Walk’ centres around spy history of the First and Second World War. You will see the house of Mata Hari, the office of a MI6 agent who got trapped by the Nazis, a SS-spy and sabotage school, a monument to the deadly 'Englandspiel' or 'England Game' between the German Abwehr and the British SOE, and the house of Holland’s arguably most successful intelligence officer and odd-job-man to Queen Wilhelmina. After this walk you will know more about the 'dark side' of The Hague.
