What should I pack when moving to The Hague?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in The Hague to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to The Hague, it is important to pack warm clothing, as the weather can be quite cold in the winter months. It is also a good idea to bring an umbrella, as the Netherlands is known for its rainy days. Additionally, it is important to bring a valid passport and any necessary documents for your stay. Finally, it is a good idea to bring a few items to make your new home feel more comfortable, such as pictures, books, and other personal items," said another expat in The Hague, The Netherlands.

"We downsized and generally packed well, but I'd say we should have brought more jeans, running shoes, voetbal cleats. (Items are much more expensive here and there is less selection.) Left at home? More of the 'stuff' that may fit in American closets (but you really don't use). I continue to weed out clothes that are too big/small/never worn. We find that we like to update our photos/paintings and artwork based on our travels, so we need to downsize some of that. (Tom Frost at Expat Alley wrote a great post about living with less because you outgrow your stuff and have new experiences.) I thought I was being ruthless but I need to be more so as closet/storage space (especially the hanging kind) is at a premium," wrote a member who made the move to The Hague, Netherlands.
