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

If you are in Brussels in the spring the gardens are open to the public and are amazing. You take a circular walk through greenhouses outside with views towards the central city and back into the greenhouses for the end of the visit. The variety of ferns dominates some houses but others are a kaleidoscope of colours and scents. The... More

Amazing place to visit in the few weeks it is open in the Spring to see the Greenhouses built by Leopold 2. Impressive flowers as well as amazing structure. You can imagine Leopold sitting here as he often did, managing his Congo affairs....

When you are in Brussels you should not miss this palace, residence of royal family. Well maintained gardens. The popular greenhouses are also worth visiting when open. So you should plan your visit accordingly. Nice experience.
