For eight days straight, The Zuiderpark and the city of the Hague will be the center point of the Invictus Games. From 29 May – 5 June 2021, participants and spectators from all over the world are welcomed in the International City of Peace and Justice.
The Hague, International City of Peace and Justice
Like no other city in the Netherlands, The Hague offers a unique combination of city life and beach life. The Hague is home to Vermeer’s famous ‘Girl with a Pearl earring’ and to the world’s largest collection of paintings by Mondrian. The city’s two seaside resorts – Scheveningen and Kijkduin – boast seven miles of sandy beaches. Getting to the historic city centre only takes you fifteen minutes. The Hague’s bustling downtown area has far more to offer than the landmarks Binnenhof, Noordeinde Palace, and Peace Palace. Boutiques, cafes, concert and dance venues, galleries, flagship stores, museums and restaurants offer something to everyone who loves culture, shopping and nightlife. The Hague is also the residence of the Dutch King, seat of the Dutch Government. 150 international organisations call The Hague home, including the International Court of Justice.
The Zuiderpark is up to 105 acres and enjoy great fame in the Hague and beyond. Footballclub ADO Den Haag played there until 2007. After major renovation, the park is now very suitable for many outdoor and indoor sports. Beating heart is the new eye-catching Sports Campus, in addition the park includes a swimming pool, running track, fitness center, roller skate Court, skate park, basketball court, cricket pitch, beach court and a number of football pitches. In the park, there is plenty opportunity for jogging and cycling.
Access to Invictus Games Park (Zuiderpark) is free of charge with the exception of the sports games for competitors.
