If you need a break from the buzz of city life during your stay in The Hague, a visit to the Japanese Gardens will place you right back into your zen zone. Founded in the beginning of the 20th century by former owner Marguérite M. Baroness van Brienen, known as ‘Freule Daisy’, these zen gardens host a collection of remarkable artifacts and rare trees brought to the Netherlands after several voyages to Japan.
Pack your favourite local products and have a picnic by the water, pay a visit to the Buddha statue, or take a relaxing stroll across small leafy paths and red-lacquered bridges. Do plan ahead as these fragile gardens are only open 8 weeks of the year! Check out their website for exact dates and times.
