  • The Royal greenhouses of Laeken are a paradise for plant lovers. They can browse the greenhouses with a view of the Park and the workshop of Queen Elisabeth. Built on the initiative of Léopold II in the 19th century, greenhouses shelter behind their glass and metal structure an important collection of plants and often exotic flowers.

  • A beautiful walk in a green setting. Well maintained greenhouse, pretty floral mounting. Buildings leaving dreamer, bearer of the history of our Belgian heritage.

  • I've always lived Laeken and I had never done the Royal greenhouses because there are always plenty of people... This year we were at home with the kid it was gray but not rainy we said we're going to walk to the Park. We were gone for a walk and arrived in front of the Royal greenhouses quasi person, time had deterred the crowd so we decided to make a visit to see what lurked behind the big glass domes. The visit was wonderful, we had a great family moment, reminded some photos, saw pretty flowers, of beautiful flowers compositions cascades of water. Missing for me a small greenhouse or could discover medicinal plants as well as their ca property would have been the top.
