  • Beautiful and we'll maintained gardens( it's part of the Belgium royal family buildings so it must be😁). The only point against - shame that is not open all time( just end of April until first or second weekend of May , sometimes in July 21st( Belgium day).
  • Impressive green houses near the palace where the Royal family lives. Keep in mind when you are strolling around this place that the genocidal King Leopold II built this place with the blood, lives and suffering of more than 10 million Congolese who died during his reign.
