Imagine that you see this every time you look out your window. And you can walk there if you feel like it.
I've been there twice already and it's back in my calendar. I do not know if I can go this year as it is for me not next door.
But if you are, I can highly recommend you the opportunity to go again.

I think it will be opened for three weeks (only). Perhaps I will finally go this time at the end of April, depending on how busy it is at work.

AsI understand it, there is a now popular pressure 9including marches/ demonstrations) for the greenhouses and the broader private park of Laeken to be permanently open to the public. Thankfully, the greenhouses and the park are owned by the Royal Donation Trust, which is nominally independent of the Belgian government, and therefore less prone to political pressure.

I visited it last year, it is wonderful indeed. The glasshouses are enormous btw, there are many of them, all linked by corridors -some under ground- with flowers as well. You also pass Queen Elisabeth's atelier, where she made her bustes. One of them was of BKS Iyengar, who tought the Queen to stand on her head at the age of 80.

Thanks for the info Marengo, that must be like heaven. I have always loved Lilacs and Tulips and Lily of the Valley the best. My aunt who had a farmstead at one time when she was alive had over 40 rose bushes, growing all in front of her home, just gorgeous. Flowers are a passion of mine when I had a place to grow them in another lifetime....now I buy them.

Thank you Cyril for the video, I really enjoyed it for I love flowers, so give me a comfy chair, a book, my needlework and of course hot tea and I would spend the day there amongst the flowers all the wonderful smells that come about..Just beautiful!
