Cobblestone (Or: Church in the Binnenhof)

Another post about the Binnenhof. There’s only a few things that I remember about this place. One of them is the beautiful golden fountain in the middle of the square. Another is the entrances you walk through to get to the square itself. The middle entrance is fairly large, or at least large enough for a car or two. There is also an entrance on either side, small enough for a few pedestrians (or more frequently, a bike).

I remember when I went, there was also a parked cop car and some police milling around, though I got the sense that this area was their regular assignment.

The other thing that I distinctly remember is the cobblestone that the square and surrounding areas are made of. I have a habit of always looking where I am walking (not that it prevents the occasional trip) so I always note the ground itself. Here the cobblestone is actually fairly wide, with a lot of space between each stone. This is somewhat noticeable, since it can get uncomfortable if your foot hits the stone wrong.

All and all, a beautiful if somewhat sparse square.

  1. That’s the Ridderzaal (Knight’s Hall), but I don’t think it’s ever been a church. Lots of other things, though! That’s where the queen goes in her golden carriage on Prinsjesadag in your other post. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ridderzaal

  2. Ah cool. Thank you! đŸ™‚
