Map of the municipality of Loosduinen (1869)

Loosduinen (Dutch pronunciation: [loːzˈdœynə(n)]) is a former village in the Netherlands that was a municipality unto itself until 1923, when it was annexed by The Hague and subsequently became a district of the city.[1]

It has its own dialect (Loosduins), which is very similar to The Hague dialect.[2]
