  • This is an opportunity not to be missed under any circumstances. Each year, the Royal greenhouses are revealed to the general public. A pleasure to the eyes and an ode to flowers and tropical vegetation. A must visit in a great area!

  • 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.
  • this park is huge! It is a pity it does not appear in many tourist guides
  • 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.
