Full description
Discover the magical illusion of the panorama of Hendrik Willem Mesdag in The Hague, the largest circular canvas in Europe. 

Look 360º around you and experience the optical illusion created by this panorama of Scheveningen from 1881. Experience a view that is never the same: the incidence of light is more than magnificent and changes from moment to moment. 

The vista of the sea, dunes, and old fishermen’s village Scheveningen was painted by H.W. Mesdag. Panorama Mesdag is a unique cultural-historical monument.

Discover Scheveningen as it was in 1881. An artistic view of the picturesque fishing village from the 19th century, the emerging cosmopolitan beach life, and the encroaching city of The Hague is presented in a feast for the senses.
