HP/De Tijd is a Dutch language monthly opinion magazine published by the Audax Groep.[1][2] Its editorial offices are in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Alongside De Groene Amsterdammer, Vrij Nederland and Elsevier, it is one of the most influential Dutch opinion magazines.[3]

The circulation of HP/De Tijd was 28,662 copies in the last quarter of 2008.[4] The paid net circulation of the magazine was 19,168 copies in the last quarter of 2011.[5]


HP/De Tijd was founded in 1990 after a merger of the news magazine Haagse Post and De Tijd.[6][2] Haagse Post was a social liberal news magazine published weekly from 1914 to 1969.[6] De Tijd was a Catholic weekly magazine.[2] Audax Groep bought the magazine in 1994 from publisher HPU, VNU and MeesPierson bank.[1]

In the early 2000s HP/De Tijd was known for its right-wing discourse, often featuring right-wing personalities such as Pim Fortuyn. Since then the opinions in the magazine tend more to the left.

HP/De Tijd was published weekly until 25 April 2012 when its frequency became monthly.[5]
