Environmental Zone

Good to know: the Mauritshuis is located in the environmental zone in The Hague. This means that you cannot drive directly to the Mauritshuis with a passenger vehicle or delivery van of emission class 3 or lower.

Please check the emission class of your car on Is your car emission class 3 or lower? If so, we recommend that you use the Malieveld parking garage. This garage is located just outside the environmental zone. It’s only a 10-minute walk from there to the Mauritshuis.


Parking is easy in The Hague and there are plenty of parking spaces available. In the case of both the Mauritshuis and the Prince William V Gallery, we recommend parking your car in the adjacent Pleingarage or the Museumkwartier parking garage.
