I loved touring Floralia at a casual pace. The flowers were beautiful and at their peak. Not as expansive and crowded as the Keukenhof Gardens, but delightful. This spring display is a way for the castle heirs to maintain their property.

Superb setting in the grounds of a castle for this wonderful display of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and other bulbs. There were also flowering azaleas and rhododendrons, and a lovely indoor flower display. We had a sunny day and we could eat our lunch, that we...More

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

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

By car. Take the E19 to Brussels. Follow the E19 around Brussels (ring). Then you will see an exit to groot bijgaarden. Follow this to the centre. Ok once in the centre (you arrive at square) you go to the left and... More
