The real house

It is situated on a quiet place, close to beautiful gardens. We found it really pretty and well cared. Walk around and enjoy the nature! 🌳

The palace is in a large park, and can only be seen from a large distance. Not much of an attraction.

This palace is the home of the King, but only on certain occasions, parts are open fir visitors. On regular days you can only get a glimpse from the street,Munich is nice if you take the hop on hop of bus, but otherwise not worth the trip.

This is the home of the Belgian Royal family and is worth the visit particularly when the Glass houses are open.Only for 3 weeks of the year. Amazing series of Glass houses with wonderful displays of Spring plants and flowers. The Japanese pagoda makes a great photo of shot from the other side of the small lake. Most enjoyable visit.

Some of the pictures here are from "wrong" palace, this Laeken Palace is little outside city centre. We decided to stop here first and then took about 20-30min walk to Atomium. Lots to see in this region, so take your bus or taxi and stop here.

The royal greenhouses are open only a few times a year, but if you happen to be in Brussels when they are, don't miss a visit. You'll see jaw-dropping displays of flowers. Even the small green houses between the larger ones are filled with wonders--like walking through a tunnel filled with geraniums and fucias. The only bad part is that... More

This review applies only to the short period in Spring when the Royal Glasshouses/Greenhouses at Laeken are open to the public. First of all the flowers are spectacular possibly the biggest selection of fuschia in the World.The visit for these alone is well worth it. Secondly go early, as early as possible. By public transport the best way is by... More

The royal greenhouses are open to the public for 2 or 3 weeks a year. I've been there twice and won't go again. The positive? Fantastic greenhouses with an amazing array of flowering plants, palms and ferns. The first time I went was enjoyable. Although there were many visitors, we all had enough space to view the plants without getting... More
