    Designed by architect Balat (Victor Horta's teacher) these greenhouses are some of Brussels' most remarkable monuments. In Brussels from 18/04 to 09/05/14.

    This magical place will delight both lovers of 19th century architecture and green-fingered plant enthusiasts.

    The highly impressive greenhouses with their ironwork frames are home to a charming range of flora and many rare species.

    They are magnificent buildings to discover time and time again.

    What you can see: Outside the greenhouses themselves, you can visit Queen Elisabeth's workshop. The itinerary will sometimes take you outside, to a part of the castle's park.

    A royal visit awaits!
