Why we sometimes also go shopping in the Netherlands

22 | 07 | 22

Even though the new Westfield Mall of the Netherlands – as the name suggests – is located in the Netherlands, we simply have to tell you about this extraordinary shopping and leisure centre. The centre in Leidschendam near The Hague truly has a lot to offer.

In a unique atmosphere, 280 shops featuring trendy international and local brands are there to welcome you, with many restaurants and bars offering delicacies from all over the world in not one, but two, food areas: the ‘Eet Theater’ and the ‘Fresh’ indoor market hall which also hosts cooking events. Numerous leisure facilities such as the centre’s own Kinepolis cinema using MX4D technology, the huge indoor playground, the bowling green and crazy golf course or the Youseum – a selfie paradise for the ultimate pictures for TikTok, Instagram, etc. – make the mall the perfect day-out destination for the whole family. ‘The Gallery’, a stomping ground for regional designers and up-and-coming brands, invites fashion fans to browse through hip concept stores and unusual pop-up outlets.

The record-breaking venue that’s also a hip place to meet up

The first Westfield centre in the Netherlands is so much more than the largest covered shopping centre in the country. Each year, 13 million visitors come here to discover the latest trends in retail, media and brand experiences.

Quite rightly, this impressive flagship destination is referred to by our Dutch colleagues as “the future of retail”. From the stylish architecture and individually designed stores with impressive shop fronts to food courts and unforgettable events, this unique hotspot offers everything a shopper’s heart desires – and all right next to one of the busiest cities in the country. For us in the Media, Brand Experience & Partnerships team, it’s just asking for a closer look and is full of inspiration!

So how about a shopping trip to the Netherlands?
