The Groot-Bijgaarden (castle) is still a family home, and the grounds of the castle are the location of the annual Floralia show. Thousands of tulips, daffodils, and other spring bulb flowers, plus azaleas, rhododendrons, and lilacs. The chapel is the only part of the castle open to the public besides the separate Tower, and has a beautiful orchid exhibit. Extensive... More

The place is pretty and compact. It's a nice location for an event. However, for a family visit its by far overpriced and has not a lot to offer. Adult ticket cost 12 euros and you've seen it all in less than an hour. Parc is small and not that well maintained. Tower is well preserved, but exposition is poor... More

I knew nothing of this flower show before I got there but I saw a few signs up around the city. I asked a few people who knew nothing about it or how to get there. I ended up taking the train to Groot Bijgaarden, about 20 minutes outside of Brussels then followed the crowd. Had the most wonderful afternoon,... More

While visiting Brussels we noticed an advertisement for "Floralia Brussels" at Kasteel Van Groot-Bijgaarden, Chateau De Grand-Bugard and decided to visit on our second day. We arrived early before the crowds and were treated by a wonderful garden of flowers beautifully arranged. If you are in Brussels, definitely visit - you will not be disappointed.

We live only half hour away by car, but it was the first time we visited Grand-Bigard. We were both impressed by the beautiful castle park with the drawbridge and donjon. Perfect backdrops for your flower pictures. During 1 month the park is filled with springflowers, mostly tulips in numerous colours and varieties, but also with daffodils and hyacinths. The... More

We visited Floralia with my family on Easter day when there was a special programme of Venetian masks strolling through the gardens. The castle itself is imposing and the tulip displays are just gorgeous! You simply breath in the fresh air and admire thousands of colours and shapes. There is a rhododendrons garden which I think is permanently there and... More

A great day out at the castle of Grand-Bigard. Easy to park (on grass field), no queue for tickets and pushchair friendly. The flowers are beautiful, showing off carpets of colour throughout the grounds. The small children's play area was a hit, as was the peacock and climbing the tower...a thumbs up from me and my 4 year old.
