I happily spent two hours visiting this big garden and I could enjoy the calmness and the silence of the environment around. A special mention is deserved by some type of flowers and plants which were very characteristic and colourful. Definitely good!

Free park with most buildings open year-around. There are plants from all over the world, including tropicals, citrus, and cactus. Great place for a date!

Leuven's botanical garden is a beautiful spot only 10 minutes from the main market square. Apart from the beautiful garden itself, this is a great spot to relax and enjoy a good book on one of the many benches.

I loved this botanical garden. Its like stepping into another world with several private sections. The greenhouse is beautifully preserved and the herb garden is a marvel. Go with friends and a packed lunch and feel your worries float away

This garden is one for all seasons. The colour schemes of the seasonal flower beds is hugely effective. Trees and evergreens abound. The care and love put ino this garden is tangible.

A nice place to visit in any period of the year, a little jewel in the centre of a Middle Age city. Just enjoying trees and flowers.

Not the type of large Botanical garden, nevertheless a fine jewel. Well maintained, attractive at different seasons, some quite corners and peacefull place in the city; Summertime opening until susnset, but wintertime closes at 5.00 pm
