Den Haag (The Hague) has a population of approx. 480,000, with some 975,000 in the metropolitan area. It is situated in the west of Randstad Holland. The Hague is the seat of the national government and home of international institutions like Europol, the Peace Palace, the International Crime Court of the UN, and more than 80 embassies and many multinational companies.

Tram network

- total length 105 km

On 16 October 2004, a short tram tunnel opened in central Den Haag after several years of delay. The 1.3 km underground section runs under Grote Marktstraat and includes two underground stations, Grote Markt and Spui. The tram tunnel is used by lines 2, 3, 4 and 6.

Lines 3, 4 and E are part of the so-called RandstadRail network, with lines 3 and 4 running to Zoetermeer on a line formerly used by suburban trains, and line E to Rotterdam on the old Hofpleinlijn, which is now linked to the Rotterdam metro system.

In November 2011, HTM ordered 40 vehicles of Siemens' new Avenio tram: 35 m long, 100 % low-floor, four sections. Delivery to The Hague is scheduled to start in February 2014.
