Japanese Garden Open @ Clingendael Estate
Oct 12 – Oct 27 all-day
Japanese Garden Open @ Clingendael Estate | Den Haag | Zuid-Holland | Netherlands

The magnificent Japanese Garden is the crown jewel of Clingendael Park, with beautiful and rare trees and plants. The garden is extremely fragile. That is why the Japanese Garden is open only 8 weeks in the year. The garden is open from 12 – 27 October.

Due to its fragility, the Japanese Garden can be visited only during a short period of the year. It is open a few weeks in the spring and in the autumn. The garden is now closed.

Opening hours
During the weeks when the garden is open in the spring, you can visit it from 9.00 to 20.00 hrs. and during the opening hours in the autumn you can enter from 10.00 to 16.00 hrs. It is not possible to visit the garden outside of these hours (not even with an appointment).

Autumn 2019: from 12 October to 27 October

Consequences of the garden’s fragility
Due to the garden’s fragility it is not possible to visit it with strollers or baby carriages and electric mobility devices.
The garden offers only limited access to people in a wheelchair. A separate entrance is available for wheelchairs with a special shorter route through the garden.
It is also prohibited to enter the garden with dogs.
If the garden has too many visitors, you may have to wait outside before you are allowed in. The fragility of the plants means there is a limit on the number of visitors allowed at a given time.
Japanese Garden in Clingendael Park
History
The Japanese Garden was created in the beginning of the 20th century by the former owner of the country estate of Clingendael, Marguérite M. Baroness van Brienen (1871-1939), also called Lady Daisy. Lady Daisy undertook several voyages by ship to Japan. She brought back to the Netherlands a number of lanterns, a water cask, sculptures, the little bridges and possibly the pavilion. It is the only Japanese Garden in the Netherlands from around 1910 and therefore has a high historical value. The municipality has managed the Clingendael estate since 1954. Staff of Haeghe Schoon en Groen from the municipality’s Haeghe Groep maintain the Japanese Garden.

Place of serenity and reflection
The garden has a unique and surprising atmosphere, partly thanks to the beautiful moss cover. The garden contains many stone lanterns in all shapes and sizes. It also has 2 water casks. One water cask has 4 images of Buddhas. The other water cask is in the shape of a lotus flower. The beautiful pavilion offers a great vantage point to admire the garden. The pavilion had sliding doors until around 1940. These panels were put back in place in 2009 with the help of Japanese architects. Lady Daisy’s legacy is now a place of serenity and reflection for visitors to the Japanese Garden.

De grote schijn - Magic in the Kralingse Bos @ Kralingse Bos | Rotterdam | South Holland | Netherlands

A piece of magic, hidden at the edge of the city

The Kralingse Bos in Rotterdam forms the backdrop for a special evening walk during the autumn holidays. As if the forest was filled with real magic, a new surprise waits behind every bush. Trees seem to come to life, mushrooms have been plucked away from a fairy tale and get a luminous glow while running water suddenly changes direction. Nature plays the leading role in this special spectacle with the forest as a natural backdrop.

All the senses are stimulated during this 2 kilometer long walk through the dark. Eyes, ears and noses go on an adventure through light, sound and smells. There are no fairy-tale creatures or evil wizards who produce their magic and thus bring the forest to life, no everything comes from suffisticated technology. Impressive and innovative gadgets provide one mysterious surprise after another, an experience for young and old.

Atlantikwall Museum open on Sundays only @ Scheveningen
Oct 20 all-day

The Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen feature several original German bunkers from the Second World War. The figurehead of the Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen is the command bunker in the complex Widerstandsnest 318 (Verteidigungsstab Badhuisweg). A man-bunker has also been set up in this complex and a toilet bunker has been made accessible. On regular open days it is possible to visit the command bunker, and there are volunteers ready to provide information and answer questions.

Widerstandsnest 318 Scheveningen
The primary museum location of the foundation is an authentically furnished command bunker of the type 608 (Bataillons-, Abteilungs- oder Regiments-Gefechtsstand). From this bunker and nearby villas in the Second World War the military command of Stützpunkgruppe Scheveningen was conducted by the occupying forces. The bunker is largely original and gives you the unique experience of a tangible past. There are also original historical objects of German, British, Canadian and American forces on display.

Man’s bunker
In the adjacent man-bunker bunker of the type 622 (Doppelgruppenunterstand) on the Badhuisweg there is a ‘time capsule’: one of the two lounges is furnished with exclusively unrestored objects. You get the impression that the bunker has remained untouched since the end of the Second World War. In reality, most bunkers in the Netherlands were looted after the war and stripped of all valuable parts. The other room is an exhibition space for photographs, art and historical objects.

Accessibility
The bunkers on the Badhuisweg are located at numbers 119-133, next to De Boshut coffee house. The museum is accessible by tram line 9. Get off at the Cremerweg stop, from there it is a two minute walk to the bunker. Car is free to park within walking distance of the museum

Entrance is 4 Euro (cash) and 2 Euro for children until 12 years.

Come along to the next edition of The Hague English Comedy Night with a number of stand-up comedians from around the world performing in English. The next show is on Saturday, 26 October at Theater Branoul.

Canadian comedian Joe Eagan brings different comedians to The Hague from around the world to entertain you in English. The monthly comedy series is organised by InternationalComedians.com.

This show features 2 comics:

Rahul Kohli (UK) – one of the most captivating acts on the circuit. As one of the few Asians who grew up in the far north of England, he’s been blessed with a view of the world that combines ‘superb political comedy’ with surreal stories. His Edinburgh Fringe shows have gained critical acclaim. Rahul is also an award winning comedian, winning the NATYS. ‘A powerful, passionate, open-minded, intelligent voice. It is superb political comedy and commentary’ – The Scotsman
Claus Reiss (Denmark) – is the only bagpipe comedian in Europe and the funniest too. His humour is sarcastic and unpretentious when he wears his kilt and talks about his life as a (misunderstood) professional bagpipe player with using a lot of self-irony in his jokes and music pieces.
