Statenkwartier en Duinoord
The Statenkwartier, one of the protected cityscapes of the Hague, was built between 1890 and 1915. It has a kind of grandeur with many beautiful buildings and many buildings of which you are unsure whether you find them kitsch or beautiful.
But the district has lots of atmosphere and is counted among the finest of The Hague. You'll see a diagonal grid with nice crossings and a lot of Art Nouveau. The area is named to the counts of Holland, most streets have names of Dutch politicians from the seventeenth century. The quarter is part of Scheveningen.
The vicinity ist highly attractive as well. We pass along the Gemeente Museum by the famous architect Berlage, the Bomenbuurt, a district by Berlage as urban designer, and the Bloemenbuurt with the famous Papaverhof, one of the finest examples of Frank Lloyd Wright-like architecture in the Netherlands.
