If you are or staying in a hotel in The Hague, like the Hilton The Hague, on a city trip you might want to go out for a special dinner. One of the more peculiar dining settings in The Hague must be the Hoftrammm, a tram rebuilt into a restaurant. During a ride of about 2 and a half hours you get a scenic tour of the city while enjoying an exquisite 5-course meal designed by topchef Pierre Wind. The menu changes regularly and is adjusted to the time of year and of course the drinks match the food very well. For a price of €79,50 you get a ride around the city, a 5 course meal and a choice between adjusted wines, beers or non-alcoholic beverages.
I rode and ate on this tram experience last year, as a birthday present to my parents, and was positively impressed by the presentation, quality and taste of the food onboard. They even managed to provide some sugar free non-alcoholic drinks for my sister (as she was the designated driver and can’t handle sugar too well) after a friendly request by mail. The tram itself has been tastefully and comfortably refurbished, with tables and seats at both ends of the tram, with the kitchen in the middle. They even have a toilet on board, all the way in the rear (and no it does not flush on the streets) which must be a unicum on board a regular city tram.
If you would ever get the chance to do it yourself, do not hesitate as it truly is worth it, one of the nicest experience I’ve had!
