Rijswijk is a green city with many city parks, giving it an attractive look. But though Rijswijk looks modern, it has a rich history. The city grew from a settlement in the peat to a green, bustling city in the heart of the Randstad. The many art works in Rijswijk show that culture is highly valuated here. For more culture, you can visit the library, the centre for the arts and the Rijswijk Theatre.
