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.

This is the place where the Royal Family resides. This is also the place where the King receives some of his visitors. There are magnificent gardens and very famous greenhouses with incredible flowers. Once a year these greenhouses ("Les Serres de Laeken") are open to the public. If you are in Brussels at that time, don't miss this visit.

The Laeken Palace is the residence of the Prince Philippe and Madilde and cannot be visited. The Serres royals de Laeken” are open to public for 2-3 weeks in spring time. The cost is very democratic (2-3€ per adult). The Palace is situated out side of the city centre and close to the Atomium and the Japanese Tour. The tour... More
