  • The place is rarely open to the public, 1 x year. Plants and flowers are exposed to the public, in a setting outside the norm... A must see!

  • Open for public just about 3 weeks in a year (in springs), this Belgian Royal park attracts so many visitors. It's full on holidays or weekends. Try to stand in line just before the opening time to avoid the crowds. It's also hard to find a parking spot if you have a car.
  • Very beautiful greenhouses. I really didn't expect to find that in Brussels. That's definitely worth a visit in Spring.
  • Beautiful greenhouses, open only three weeks in a year in the spring. The entry fee is super cheap, although you have to queue quite some time to get in.
  • If you are in town during the spring, visit the royal Greenhouses of Laeken. Impressive gardens, impressive flowers, its beautiful during the day but has a special charm during the night :)
  • Only open a few weeks every year. But it's worth the effort! It's large, it's only €2,5 and you get to see special flowers and enjoy their smells.
