I took a day trip from Amsterdam simply to visit this garden, it was really pretty but probably a bit too many visitors. Only only 6 weeks a year, so be sure to visit during summer if you're here!

It is a small garden that is open only a few weeks a year. It is free to enter. If you have the time go there a few times in a few weeks,You can see different colors of flowers every time. If it is not open, no worries. The Clingendael park is also worth the visit. Nice fact are the... More

It's a little hard to get to from downtown. Make sure you don't follow the official directions and instead take bus 18 the Clingandael. It is maybe a 10 minute walk to the garden from the bus stop. The garden is only open a few weeks per year. The rest of the park is also very beautiful and worth a... More

The Japanse garden at CLINGENDAEL was constructed in 1913 for FREULE DAISY ;BARONESS MARGUERITE VAN BRIENEN (1871-1939) in an old oak forest in her estate. The garden was an european version inspired by the original Japanese gardens she had seen in Japan. These european interpretations are sometimes called "japonaiserie gardens" I really like how the natural moss-carpet growing under these... More

Early May we visited this colourful attraction, near our homecity The Hague. We enjoyed the huge variety of coloured flowers, walking on the many roads, pretty crowded (perhaps this garden is named Japanese Garden, due to the many Japanese tourists ...). We also loved the Japanese atmosphere (famous painters like Monet and Van Gogh too), like the houses and the... More

We went to visit the garden as it opens only 6 weeks per year. The garden is very nice and the gardeners are putting all their love into it. Allthough you are about 15 minutes outside of the centre of The Hague in this place it feels like you are in the middel of nowhere. Birds are singing all their... More

The garden is pretty, but if you are in the right season (May-June depending on the weather the real show are the hundred of meters of rhododendron and azaleas in full blossom along the path leading to the Japanese garden from the main entrance of Clingendael park.
