Route and accessibility

The Nationaal Archief is located next door to The Hague Central Station. There is currently a lot of construction work going on around the station. We therefore advise you to come by public transport.

By public transport

If you are arriving by train, bus, tram or RandstadRail, alight at The Hague Central Station. Exit through the side entrance by the RandstadRail platform (previously platform 12) and cross over Anna van Burenstraat. The Nationaal Archief is on your right.
