Justice and Culture in Amsterdam & The Hague
Enjoy New Year's in Europe. Begin your journey to The Hague and find out why it’s the “City of International Peace and Justice.” Explore the city on a walking tour and discover the Humanity House, a museum established by the Red Cross to increase awareness of humanitarian issues. There you’ll learn about the consequences of conflict, while reflecting on your own personal freedoms. Visit the 19th-century Peace Palace, a symbol of the global peace movement and home to the International Court of Justice. Students will get acquainted with Amsterdam, where 1,200 bridges crisscross 160 canals and where Anne Frank penned her poignant diary. You’ll visit the Rijksmuseum, which is dedicated to Dutch art and history, and take a bike ride through nearby Vondelpark. Stroll down city streets on a walking tour that highlights the Westerkerk (West Church), where Rembrandt is buried, and Dam Square, which is home to Koninklijk Paleis (the Royal Palace). Students will also visit the Euronext Exchange – the world’s oldest stock exchange founded in 1602.
