Sweet summer happenings in the 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.

Summer Floridylle

It’s summer, the sun is high in the sky and the days long! Create a colourful hairdo in the poetic hair salon. Enjoy the exciting mini-circus. Become an acrobat in the circus workshop or if you prefer, stretch your legs in our hammocks?

Everything is possible! Relax in the Pachthof with a drink and a bite to eat while your children exercise their creativity in one of the free workshops. Do a guided walk through our beautiful collection of patio plants.

In short, celebrate the start of summer with the Botanic Garden Meise!
