This sounds stupid and I don't know if someone has already asked this but, can people (non-royal like me) visit the park of Laeken? The Chinese pavilion and the Japanese inspired tower makes it seem like such a beautiful place to go and see. =)

Each year, in the spring, the Glasshouses of Laeken are opened to the public, in the last week of April and the first week of May. This tradition has been carried on for a century.

It's used for official occasions. Just a part of the palace, and sometimes the greenhouses too.

The park is private.

1.2.3.4. The park and greenhouses

5. Inside the wintergarden

6.7. On the grounds of Laken is a cute little house that queen Elisabeth (Filip's greatgranmother) used to sculpt and paint in. When she died in 1965 it was kept the way it was as a memory of her.
