# 15. Voorhout violet
The Lange and Korte Voorhout with the beautiful lime trees is so called because it used to be an offshoot of the Haagse bos, also known as Voorhout or Voorhout. In the 14e century, the Voorhout was full of houses that were scattered and crooked and it was not as beautiful as it is now. It was not until a century later that it got its current shape and small gardens were created. The beautiful tree-lined avenue is due to Emperor Charles V who saw how the village of Die Haghe was becoming increasingly crowded and decided to add the gardens to the wide avenue. Violet is the color used by artists. Mystics and spiritually evolved her inspiration. It is the color of trust, intuition and mysticism.
