Not smart to go in October. It was pretty, but barely anything was in bloom. Nevertheless it was located within a great park which is good for a stroll on a nice day.

Truly beautiful and peaceful garden. Tranquility at it best. The red maple was in its spectacular phase when I visited so this was a popular place to have a photograph taken. The pathways are wide enough to easily walk around. The gardens are maintained to a high standard. This garden is only opened in certain times, it would be advised... More

Only open a few weeks during the year so we went. Seems a bit run down to me and the structures in the area needed some pruning and work to look like it's better kept up. I dunno this place just seems overrated to me.

Due to limited time it's open, the gardens biotope is rather fragile, it is definitly worth visiting if you happen to be in The Hague during late April and early May. The garden oozes with relaxation and the blossom just adds to the magical feeling.

This garden is small but beautiful, especially in the Fall when the trees take on incredible colors. Try to go during the week as it gets very crowded. The Clingendael park is great for a longer stroll too so make sure you have time to enjoy it too. There is a honig shop, don't miss it.

I have been several times to this place and always enjoyed it. The garden is really small, so sometimes it can be a little bit overcrowded as it only opens in Spring and Autumn. The last time i went was last autumn, hardly anyone around so the peace and quiet was great, the colours were very vibrant. It is like... More

Only open in Spring and Autumn season this is a very nice place to visit. We visited here in Spring and it was very lovely. When you walk through the gardens you don't feel being in a large city. It's quiet and serene. The gardens itself are well-maintained and beautiful. Only disappointment is its size. It's quite small.

We visited the Japanese garden on a beautiful mid-week spring day. We cycled to the park and from the entrance of the Clingendael park we walked for five minutes to get to the Japanese garden. As it is open only a couple of weeks a year in spring and autumn) there were quite a few people there. It is like... More
