  • No luck, it rains... Well this has changed a lot of our view on greenhouses. Two years ago, we had been visiting the greenhouses, beautiful, enchanting. Just outside, we had spent an hour (see photo). On the other hand this time, rain galore, fast fast, we run to enter the greenhouses. We are in line-Leu to the exit... not terrible as printing this second time...

  • Very beautiful botanical garden with an impressive architecture. However, the gardens are only open 3 weeks a year.

  • Beautiful and we'll maintained gardens( it's part of the Belgium royal family buildings so it must be😁). The only point against - shame that is not open all time( just end of April until first or second weekend of May , sometimes in July 21st( Belgium day).
  • Even though it's a very touristic spot, I enjoyed it so much! a fairytale in the city of Brussels! It's open only for a short period during the year so be careful to check the dates!
