If you want to get lost in a Victorian vibe in the Netherlands, look no further than the Huygenskwartier in Voorburg. As one of the suburbs of The Hague, Voorburg is a city with a rich history and has named its old city centre after the famous astronomer Christiaan Huygens and his father, poet and politician Constantijn Huygens who both lived in the area. Nowadays it is a bustling part of Voorburg with many monumental buildings, filled to the brim with modern shops, cafés, restaurants and much more. With Voorburg just shy of five minutes away by train from The Hague, one visiting the latter should definitely see what the Huygenskwartier entails.
