This garden is within the huge park of Clingendael, easily reachable from Central Station with bus 18. Follow the big entrance alley of the park and then turn to the right. The Japaanse Tuin (Japanese Garden) opens only in May-June (6 weeks) and in October (2 weeks). It is a huge success, and it is crowded, especially in the weekends.... More

You can reach the garden by taking tram line #18 to the last stop. Walk back towards the direction you came, and you will see the sign to Clingendael Park. The garden is located inside the park. It takes about 10 minutes or so to get to the garden from the park entrance. The walk to the garden is very... More

This is one of the most beautiful places in The Hague. A real enrichment. The fact that the garden is accessible just during a certain period of the year makes a visit more special.

Went for a visit with my girlfriend on a sunday afternoon. Great atmosphere, a bit crowded tough but not to much. The big tree outside the area is worth a view as well

A beautifully stunning garden to walk around. It's only open a few weeks of the year (May to June) so if you get the chance, go and have a walk around. It's enchanting. The colours in the garden are just..... The reflections in the water of the garden are just... Everything about this place is beautiful.

We visited the gard national on a weekday. It was lovely weather; sunny and warm. Some of the gardens were in bloom,mothers were ponds, dogs fetching sticks and balls, birds chirping, and geese feeding. Plenty of benches to rest on and a cafe to cool off in.

Outside of Japan, this may be the loveliest japanese garden available. I come here to write, and the muse never stands me up. Particularly by the japanese maples with the small purple leaves. Absolutely enchanting garden.
