A three-week window allows visitors and residents to walk through these magnificent gardens in Brussels


If your green thumb is lucky enough to be in Brussels, Belgium, for three weeks between the end of April and early May, visit the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken. Designed for King Leopold II in 1873, this maze of neoclassical glass and iron buildings hosts an amazing collection of rare and valuable plants. And for over a century, the royal family has carried on the tradition of opening the six acres of greenhouses to the public for three weeks a year. It’s well worth the 2.5 euros. Here is a peek into the labyrinth of greenhouses.
