The Scheveningen Pier is a pleasure pier in the Dutch resort town of Scheveningen near the Hague. Opened in 1959, the current pier is the second in the town, the first being lost just after, and as a result of, the second world war.

Its unusual construction boasts two levels for the main pier, the lower deck a closed-in section, the upper open to the elements, and four terminal sections called 'islands', each originally with a separate focus. Its total length is currently 382 metres.

The Pier is closed now and for sale because its not safe anymore. But nobody want to buy it because the renovation costs will be very high.

A very impressive photo. Sad when these old piers end up like this. I can think of at least one in England (Brighton's West Pier) that has been abandoned.

It's always sad to hear that old constructions aren't renovated due to lack of money.....
Nevertheless a fantastic atmosphere Anna-Maria !! ;°)
