The very official botanic garden of Belgium

If you have ever been wondering if there is a bit more than the small and shabby looking botanic garden in Brussels next to metro station Botanique then the answer is ‘Yes’. Brussels, or to be precise here: Belgium, has a much bigger, national botanic garden which is in Meise. That is roughly 60 bicycle minutes north of Brussels, already in Flanders and located in a very beautiful park. The parks and it’s well organised and diversified greenhouses are open all year long – not like the royal ones – and are definitely worth a trip on a sunny, or at least not too rainy, Sunday.

  1. I keep on planning to visit some of the gardens around Belgium, but then I look outside, and think better of it.
