The Beatrixkwartier (literally Beatrix Quarter in Dutch) is a modern financial district in The Hague, near the Central Station, in the Bezuidenhout district. The name was thought up when they were renewing the Beatrixlaan. Officially this area is the strip of buildings along the Utrechtsebaan from Nationale Nederlanden to the Palace of Justice. Besides Nationale Nederlanden, companies such as Siemens, TNT Post, Sdu and Mn Services are based here.

The central axis of the quarter is the Prinses Beatrixlaan along with the Beatrixkwartier RandstadRail station halfway past the Netkous-viaduct, which opened on October 29, 2006. Furthermore, the neighborhood is intersected by the Utrechtsebaan (A12).
