I visited this park for the first time last autumn, and I found it beautiful! Yes, it is a bit small and definitely crowded (even on a rainy day, but understandable given it’s only open for two weeks in spring and two weeks in autumn) but I really liked it. Maybe that was because it was my first visit to such a garden ever, but still. Loved the colours and the design. Will return in spring for sure!

Open usually in May and two weeks in October, the Japanese garden receives more and more visitors each year. Photography and theme photo shoot lovers can't miss the garden in blossom. It's a modest size garden, well curated and looked after. Weekdays visit may be better as on a weekend the place is too busy to have any pleasurable impression and idea of the garden the essence of which- to rejoice with nature in harmony, solitude and silence.

Clingendael is possibly one of the most beautiful estates in the Netherlands. The 16th century traditional manor and its surrounding gardens make for a gorgeous destination. Clingendael refers to valley between (in) the dunes. And what an amazing valley it is with the landscaped gardens and the lush undisturbed natural forest areas. The Japanese Garden happens to be the best and most delicate sections of this place.

Only up 8 weeks a year. Visited on the last day this autumn. Way too busy. People everywhere, no space to enjoy what is a very small garden. No social distancing. Noisey children. Not a peaceful experience, as a Japanese garden should be. Not easy to get to either. Long walk from center of the Hague, no easy public transport link. Wouldn’t visit again.

The Japanese Gardens in Clingendael Park The Hague are small but beautiful...! They are only open for a few weeks per year, in Spring and Autumn...! It's the only Japanese garden in the Netherlands...! xx

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 really worth a visit unless you can see the Japanese Gardens.
You get there by tram 18 and it's important to know the return tram 18 is on the same side of the road just further up.

We visited the garden on April 25th. The garden is relatively small, but it is surrounded by the huge park of Clingendael estate, housing an old style Dutch garden.

Things to consider:
- The park is very pretty. It's opened 8 weeks a year, because of the delicacy of the flowers
- Entrance if free of charge
- The Japanese garden is part of Clingendael Estate which is surrounded by a huge park that you can stroll in for hours
- The park holds a small place where you can get simple food and drinks
- Parking in the weekend in the surrounding areas is free of charge
- Number of bathrooms is limited. The small restaurant has a bathroom and they charge € 0.50 per visit

All in all a great visit if you are in the area of The Hague already.

In a short words "A little piece of Japan in The Hague". Just a place you have to visit when you are in the city!

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 dog graves of the former baroness Van Brienen.

You should really visit this beautiful Japanese garden. Free entrance.
The area called Clingendael.
Don't forget to bring your camera!. Wear comfortable shoes, because if you want to see the beauty of this garden, you need to take a long walk. Public transport is available (bus).
Check for the opening time via this website http://www.denhaag.nl/home/bewoners/to/Japanse-Tuin.htm
