Royal Greenhouses of Laeken

Visit the World's Largest Royal Greenhouse
Each spring, the Belgian Royal family opens their private greenhouse complex to the public, for a short two weeks. It is well worth braving the crowds to visit.

This incredible 2.5 hectare structure was built in the late 1800s and its architecture is stunning all on its own. Add in the giant palm trees, rare plants and millions of blooms, and you have a magical, colourful space.

Visitors also get a rare look at the palace grounds, including views of the Japanese Tower, not normally available to the public.

Great outing
We visited the Royal Greenhouses today and were very impressed. They are only open until the 12th of May so hurry up if you want to see them. A bit crowded but the flow of people runs pretty smooth. The entry is very cheap at 2.50 euro for adults and free under 18. No picnicking aloud inside.
