The price (13€ per person!!!) is a shame, the parking is badly organised: it’s a nice castle with a reasonably maintained garden (nothing special, just bigger than most private gardens). The recent rains made part of the roads inaccessible, the soil was quite muddy.

Hidden in the heart of the small Brussels suburb, Groot-Bijgaarden, lies this magnificent castle and its grounds. This is like a very tiny, not so famous Versaille. But saying that, it is still a truly beaitiful, colourful, flower show.y only gripe is that there could...More

Definetely not worth to spend €14 per person...not so much to see,bit crowded,mud around flowers,bulbs are beautiful but at least someone should have weed them.Better travel bit further to Hollands Keukenhof to have experience of your life.

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...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...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,...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...More
