About The Hague

Welcome to the ‘Royal City by the Sea’!

Top Things to Do

Madurodam – Miniature city Madurodam in The Hague is the perfect place to discover what makes Holland so unique. Canal houses, flower-bulb fields, cheese markets, windmills, the Peace Palace and Delta Works.

The Hague Market – The biggest outdoor market in Europe.  The Hague Market is locally pronounced as the ‘Haagse Mart’ and is located on Herman Coster street. You can buy just about everything here on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Approximately 25,000 people visit the Hague Market each market day.

The Ooievaart – The canal boat trip of The Hague. Get to know The Hague from a unique perspective while being told many interesting facts. The boat departs from the Bierkade all year round. During the 90-minute trip you will see several highlights that include the stately houses along the Mauritskade and Hooikade, the Palace Gardens and the Malieveld.

Diversity Scholarship

Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Cloud Foundry ecosystem, and it is imperative to us that everyone in the community that wants to participate feels welcome to do so regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, age, religion or economic status. Our code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.

Scholarship Program

To encourage and increase the participation of a diverse community, we are pleased to offer diversity and need-based registration scholarships and discounts to our conferences.

Cloud Foundry Foundation’s scholarship program provides support to traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized persons in the technology and/or open source communities (including, but not limited to persons identifying as LGBT, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities) who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend our events for financial reasons.
