Grote Marktstraat (Main Market Street)

4) Grote Marktstraat (Main Market Street)

The Grote Marktstraat is one of the most important shopping streets in The Hague and has relatively few offices, homes and catering establishments . The street was built in the late 1920s to create a traffic connection between the Prinsegracht and the southeastern part of the city ( Station Staatsspoor and Bezuidenhout ). Today it is a street where motorized traffic has no access.

This road connection was created by the demolition of many streets, buildings and slums between the Grote Markt and the Spui . The only buildings that still recall the period before the construction of the Grote Marktstraat is situated between the Grote Markt and the Raamstraat; this row of facades was then part of the former Gerbrandstraatje. Its name is taken from the Grote Markt, which was then the end of the Prinsegracht and the beginning of the city center of The Hague.

To improve the competitive position of The Hague, the municipality has the ambition to turn Grote Marktstraat into a shopping boulevard with international allure. In 2014 , the definitive redesign of the Grote Marktstraat as a shopping promenade started. The opening of a branch of Hudson's Bay in September 2017 symbolized the conclusion of the renovation of the former V&D building in the Grote Marktstraat, after earlier parts had already been taken into use by other chains.
