The weather forecast is promising, finally, it will be spring-ish on Sunday, picknick-time in the park just after the greenhouse visit, but there is also the info that back-packs may not be authorized inside the royal domain (thank you Jackie). Easy solution: I will come with our little expedition truck :-) where you can store your picknick stuff while we are in the greenhouse (as always for public parkings in Belgium, no valuables, I can't take any responsibility). I will be at the parking just opposite the entry early, easily spotted, the truck has Photoresk stickers on the doors.


Royal Greenhouses of LaekenIt's the flower time again! This spring we will visit the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken. Open only for three weeks, once a year, one needs to be careful not to miss it.

"An excellent opportunity to see the wonderful architecture of Alphonse Balat, the mentor of Victor Horta, and the many plants in the greenhouses. You can also visit:
the studio of Queen Elizabeth."

After the visit, we will gather all together for a picnic and nice talks. So bring some food and happy thoughts to share. May the weather be with us!

We will go on Sunday morning at the opening time to avoid the crowds. The gardens are popular and taking photos can get difficult during the day. Meeting time 9:15am! We will get the group together and line up for the 9:30am opening.

Entrance and exit through the main gate of the Castle of Laeken. This is where we will meet!

The tickets are 2,50 euro and can only be bought at the entrance.

See you there! :)
