Spring is calling you to the Botanic Garden

Where better to see the change in seasons than the Botanic Garden? We will therefore celebrate the start of each season: Floridylle!

Each Floridylle is packed with great activities to welcome the coming season! The Botanic Garden displayed at its best. The seasonal plants are placed in the spotlight while we lead you through the most beautiful parts of the Garden.

Spring Floridylle

Winter is over and the Garden is on wearing its Sunday best. Come enjoy the spring throughout the Easter holiday. The trees and shrubs are budding with life. Splashes of spring colour abound, from the radiant magnolias with their soft pinks, yellows and whites, to golden daffodils and pink blossoming trees. The soft greens of the first leaves and the white wood anemones form a spectacular backdrop.

All activities are included in the entrance ticket.*

Expo: In Love with Nature – Guided by Plants

Marine Coutelas, our Artist in Residence, takes us into her colorful dreams that sparkle like water. She is fascinated by sea life and she is looking at what today’s land plants have retained from their ancestors who lived in the sea.
She looks at the world from the plants perspective and she reflects what she sees against a wall, on a roof or on the ground. In the coming year, Marine will express her discoveries in several works of art in the Botanic Garden.
You can admire her work in the entrance hall of the Plant Palace and the Tower Room of the Castle. In the course of the year she will also exhibit in the Park.
