Any recommendations for nice green spaces?

(8 answers)
By Maria Traveller May 23, 2018

I love visiting interesting parks and gardens while travelling, and I know that the best ones are often hidden. Are there any that are particularly special?

I see someone recommended Zuiderpark and I have to agree. It's a bit farther from the city centre but it's got mini spots within the park, off the main track, that is almost always empty (a maze, a sculpture spot, a deer park, a herb garden, for example). Winter time if it snows, very good.

But for convenience, definitely Haagse Bos. I have tried the Nieuwe Haagse Bos but it is nothing special unless you like how quiet it is.

Hi Maria, I absolutely love 'Landgoed Clingendael' which is actually very well known. A more hidden garden that I still would love to visit myself is 'De tuin van geloven' (Address: Westeinde 101, 2512 GW Den Haag.) Other great parks are for example: Haagse Bos, Westduinpark, Westbroekpark and Paleistuin. Have fun! Jorinde

Yes, so Malieveld/Koekamp is great in summer and you can easily walk through it and visit the city forest (Haagse Bos). It is a nice short walk if you have a couple of hours to kill or for a picknick. Another nice place is the royal gardens (Paleistuinen), in summer you will find children playing, picknicks and people sunbathing. If you are staying for a longer time, Clingendael is a beautiful place but its not walking distance from the city centre.
