Another visit to this exceptional garden. A magnificent collection of rare plants, a living library and an inspiration for one's own garden. Part of the museum pass.

Some 8K outside Brussels you'll find The Botanical gardens of Meise. You can reach them by car, bus or bike. Very calm and beautiful with great greenhouses.
