  • The Royal greenhouses of Laeken lie in the private royal domain, and are open only a few weeks a year. An opportunity to discover beautiful collections of plants from all over the world, as well as temporary exhibitions. Do not miss, of course, the architecture of greenhouses, a magnificent works of metal and glass.

  • Uninspiring park with conventional playgrounds for small children that got tired of the possibillities within 15 minutes. 
  • In Brussels at the end of April, so I went to the greenhouses open to the public. Most greenhouses Palace so you neatly-dressed. Night transportation access, so I went, on the way back became anxiety.

  • Stunning floral and plant displays - the walkway of fuchsias is amazing. Beautiful grounds. Many steps and uneven pathways. Only open 3 weeks per year. Accessible by public transportation. HIGHLY recommended.
  • Beautiful! Too bad its only open a few weeks a year.
  • If you happen to be in Brussels during the time this place is open you absolutely bhave to do so. This place is just amazing.
  • It was nice
