Japanese Garden, The Hague

(4.4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Went to visit early April only to discover that the actual Japanese Gardens inside Clingendael park (Japanese Turin) only opens on 30th April. The Park itself was lovely to stroll around, but not real...  more »
  • Many years I late again for the season that this beautiful garden. Beautiful views and a short walk. Either you don't have much time for this garden from it but are images that you don't often or actually nowhere else in the Hague. It can be sometimes crowded.

  • If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, the Japanese garden is definitely recommended. It's peaceful and pretty in my opinion. Definitely worth it to take a long to go.

  • Open only a handful number of days a year, but worth a visit. I'm far from being a connoisseur in gardening, but this garden is by far the most beautiful I've seen.
  • I went on mid-march and it was closed. The garden and the park surrounding is beautiful though. Worth a visit. The garden opens between mid april and october.
  • The garden is ancient. And kept this way unfortunately. Could use a bit cleaning up , but that is of course just IMHO. ;-) Nice walk though. The park Clingendael it is in, is nicer, with good parking availability and kids playing place.
  • Looks lovely from the outside gate. It's not open to the public very often according to their website. I'll try again when it's open next spring :(
  • Love the setting in park Clingendael and the history behind it. Look at the website for the opening hours as it is closed most of the year.
