Promotion of the city

All files we provide on this website are royalty-free to download and use to promote the city of The Hague. The material is expressly not intended for merchandising and product advertising.

With regard to the use of the material, we cannot grant exclusivity. Are you looking for unique content? In that case, we recommend using a photographer or videographer yourself or purchasing a suitable stock photo.

Portrait rights

Are there people depicted recognisably in the photo or video you want to use? Then keep in mind that the file must be used in the right context. All files may be used to promote the city of The Hague.

For example: a photo of people drinking a beer on the Scheveningen beach may be used to promote Scheveningen or The Hague in general, but not for a meeting for alcoholics. By doing so, you take the photo out of context and imply that the people depicted are addicted to alcohol.


The Hague & Partners and the Hague Municipality cannot be held liable for third-party claims or any consequential damage in case of unlawful use.
