  • Each year, the Royal greenhouses are open to the public for a limited time. Species presented are wonderful and it is amazed at the scope of places and many varieties which are cultivated. The only downside: only open for a few days, the crowd press and therefore patience is required because queues are long to enter greenhouses.

  • Too rarely accessible, victim of their success and even if you are preparing, this mythical place is a real delight

  • For lovers of plants or just to marvel at, the location is superb. A relaxing afternoon. The outdoor gardens for Spades fuck. A quiet and relaxing place. The building and the windows are exceptionally beautiful and well maintained. To see

  • 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.
