We visited the garden by taking a bus from downtown Brussels and it lets you off right at the park which is north of town about 20 minutes. The bus runs every 15 minutes so an easy way to go if you don't have a car. It is very well laid out and well kept. The greenhouses are very nice and are laid out according to type of landscape and climate - arid, humid, tropical, orchids etc. You go from one area to another and their collection is nice. Having lived in DR Congo and Madagascar, many of their plants originated from there. It is a very worthwhile place to visit and slow down and enjoy nature and it is especially nice on a sunny day which can be rare in Brussels. We got lucky and had a very nice couple of hours.
