Scheveningen is a modern seaside resort in The Hague (Netherlands) with a long sandy beach, an esplanade, a pier (2:45), and a lighthouse.

Night life centers on the movie and musical theaters, and seafront boulevard with its bars, restaurants, gambling and arcade hall.

Work on renewing the boulevard began end 2009, an operation that will last 2-3 years. Scheveningen seafront will be given a complete makeover by giving such buildings as the Kurhaus, the Palace Promenade complex and Sealife a more open character.

History: in 1818, Jacob Pronk constructed a wooden building on a dune near the sea, from where people could bathe from four separate rooms. It marked the start of Scheveningen as a bathing resort. Since then, Scheveningen has attracted numerous tourists from all over Europe. The pier was completed in 1961.

Filmed on May 31, 2009. This is my first longer video. The panoramic shots were filmed on a tripod which did not rotate as smoothly as I hoped.
