Japanese Garden, The Hague

#1 of 16 in Parks in The Hague
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. Admission 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 »

  • I expected it to be bigger and the charm was a bit gone for me because of all the visitors. It was okay to visit it once. But not a must unless you just want to take some nice pictures.
  • Cozy little place in the middle of Clingendael estate. Has a bunch of colorful trees and some Japanese statues. The Clingendael estate has so many more beautiful gardens, it was lovely to stroll through them.
  • Japanese garden in the city which is only open certain periods in a year. I personally think it's more beautiful during the fall than in the spring. When there's too many people it feels small and crowded.
  • Absolutely stunning. Can be crowded but can still enjoy this place. Took amazing photoes. Visited in June.
  • Nothing special. Maybe in spring is better. Many people but it's good only for a walk.
