Now wedged between major thoroughfares in the north of Brussels, the Botanical Gardens were inaugurated in 1829. This urban park is laid out in French-, Italian- and English-style terraces. You'll find a wide variety of plants, including the famous iris, symbol of the Brussels-Capital Region. Stroll through the Iris garden, take a look at the star-shaped rose garden and its pond, and admire the thirty bronze and stone sculptures.
Overlooking the garden is a glass building housing the Wallonia-Brussels Federation' Botanique cultural centre, which hosts various events in its Orangery, Rotunda and Museum rooms and the Witloof Bar, among others. Come and attend concerts and cinema sessions or discover exhibitions in these welcoming and intimate spaces.
