Built in 1873 by the architect Alphonse Balat at the request of Leopold II, this is a real town of glass which took more than 20 years to grow in the area around the Royal Castle of Laeken: rotundas, cupolas and galleries house magnifi cent collections of exotic plants, trees and fl owers, some of which were brought back from the Congo. The greenhouses are open for one fortnight a year just when the azaleas are in full bloom; the place is magical, the setting enchanting and the fragrances captivating.
