The Hague (Dutch: Den Haag or 's-Gravenhage) is a city (and municipality) on the western coast of the Netherlands (Holland) on the North Sea. It is the administrative and royal capital of the Netherlands and its seat of government, as well as the capital of the province of South Holland. It hosts the International Court of Justice and International Criminal Court.

The spelling "'s-Gravenhage" was officially used for the city from the 17th century onward. Today, this name is only used in some official documents like birth and marriage certificates. The city itself uses "Den Haag" in all its communications.

With a population of over half a million, it is the third-largest city in the Netherlands, after Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

The Hague is the seat of the Cabinet, the States General, the Supreme Court and the Council of State of the Netherlands, but the city is not the constitutional capital, which is Amsterdam.
