Fall-ing in The Hague

How did everyone do on midterms? Whether everything went well or some might be more of a disaster, you should just forget about it and be happy because the sky finally clears up after God knows how long and gives place for absolutely beautiful sweater weather!

I have always fantasized about gorgeous fall sceneries with golden sunshin and honey-coated leaves. I almost thought I would miss it due to the depressing weather of the last couple of weeks. But thank God! I’ve also been asking around for recommendation of a perfect location for admiring the season and was so lucky to find out about the Japanese garden in The Hague just one day before the last opening day of the season.

I was not disappointed at all! It’s like all of my expectations of fall have become translated into reality. As I reached the garden I was in awe that it is actually located inside a much larger park – Park Clingendael in The Hague. It is really huge, and basically all you can ever ask for for fall weather. I will just let the pictures speak for themselves. And even though the Japanese garden is now closed you should still hurry up and visit this place so that you won’t miss out on Dutch gorgeous fall weather 🙂

How to get there: when you reach Den Haag Central Station, go upstairs following the bus sign. Take bus number 18 towards Clingendael (platform B) and get off at the last stop.
