The Hofvijver is a pond in the centre of The Hague. It is adjoined in the east by the Korte Vijverberg , in the south by the Binnenhof and the Mauritshuis, in the west by the Buitenhof and in the north by the Lange Vijverberg . In the middle there is a small island with plants and trees which has no name, it is usually referred to as "the island in the Vijverberg".
The term pond is actually a misnomer, as the Hofvijver has its origin in a natural dunelake fed by the Haagse Beek and the, nowadays muted, Bosbeek from the Haagse Bos . The Haagse Beek still feeds the Hofvijver and so the pond is directly connected to the dunes in Kijkduin.
