  • A paradise of flowers and the architectural beauty of the huge greenhouses. Stroll in the perfectly neat Park and visit the House where Queen Elisabeth painted and carved. Even by going there every year, you don't get tired not.

  • Greenhouses are open to one visits once a year, the perfect opportunity to discover the architecture of these huge greenhouses but also the very many flowers and their colors. Personally, I preferred to visit them the day than at night. Also try to go one day where there is sunlight for good illumination of the greenhouses.

  • 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.
