Bruxelles / Brussels to Den Haag / The Hague by train

The Dutch high speed railway between Rotterdam and Amsterdam, used by both the Thalys and Intercity trains from Brussels, bypasses Den Haag/The Hague.
Until last year to compensate for this, there were three direct Intercity trains per day from Bruxelles to Den Haag, but these services have now been withdrawn.
So there are now two options for making a rail journey from Bruxelles to Den Haag/The Hague
1 = taking a Eurostar (formerly Thalys) train to Rotterdam and connecting there for trains on to Den Haag.
2 = taking an Intercity train from Bruxelles to The Netherlands and connecting in Breda or Rotterdam for Den Haag.
