Parks & Gardens

A personal selection of some of the many beautiful parks and gardens to visit in Belgium, including, where possible, opening times and location details.

Kalmthout Arboretum

Covering 12 hectares and with a collection of over 7,000 rare trees and shrubs and many more perennials, Kalmthout Arboretum to the north of Antwerp has become known worldwide. It’s well worth a visit at any time of the year.

Leuven Botanical Garden

The Leuven Botanical Garden may be one of the smallest botanical gardens in Belgium, but it’s one of the most charming. It’s small enough to cover in an hour or two; it’s well laid out; and easily accessible with wheelchairs and children’s buggies.
