Garden Nature / Park
Visit an oasis of tranquility at the Hague Clingendael Park's Japanese Garden. The garden was established by Baroness Marguerite Mary van Brienen, known as Lady Daisy, who made several trips to Japan in the early 20th century and brought back authentic works of art, as well as garden bridges and the pavilion. In addition to exploring the rich collection of plants, you can admire a variety of lanterns, statues, and a Shinto shrine. The garden is usually open seasonally--but the schedule may vary due to weather conditions. AdmissionĀ is free.

  • A quiet beauty in spring and fall. Go during the cherry blossom period or when trees turn golden in the fall. It is usually quiet in the park, nice to have lunch here on a sunny day.  more »
  • Avoid the Sunday and weekday lunch break, as staff at the ANWB headquarters nearby the garden populated. But at other times is this small, perfectly manicured Japanese garden very enjoyable. If it is open, because that is the garden just a few weeks a year.

  • Clingendael located next to the main building, by the ANWB. A beautiful (bos) park for a beautiful walk and a visit to the Japanese garden, with as Eye catcher the Red Bridge and the beautifully landscaped paths, and trees. PLEASE NOTE it is not open all year round, so first, look on the internet for hours of operation

  • Beautiful garden inside a park: the Japanese garden was brought to The Hague virtually plant by plant at the beginning of the 1900. Everything is very delicate, so dogs are not allowed and kids only with parents (a maximum of 2 per parent). The garden is closed during the summer. Make sure it's a sunny day, the light is just magical.
  • Dazzling Japanese garden with many different plants and trees. A place you must have seen in your life. No entry for dogs and buggies. Toilets are in a restaurant nearby.
  • Tranquil gardens in the Hague. Free admission. Seasonal entrance. However, Clingendael park is open year round. Paid street parking and accessible by bus. Casual restaurant in the park.
  • Great place to be, only 6 weeks open during spring and two weeks in the fall. Beautiful plants and trees. It can be busy. You can have a nice walk in the forest around the garden.
  • Not very big but definitely beautiful. They're opened 8 weeks a year and has free entrance. On this sunny Mother's day it was a bit crowded but still very enjoyable.
