Light festival full of pure magic

During the coldest days of the year, the Botanic garden turns into a magical fairy-tale forest.

Light festival Winter Floridylle takes you on a 3.5 km tour along beautiful light installations. We illuminate the long winter evenings with light installations which have been specially designed for this occasion by the creative team of the Botanic Garden.

Come and enjoy the wintery splendour of light and enchanting sounds. Piet Goddaer composes all the music for this edition of Winter Floridylle and  plunges you into a sensational musical experience.

  • 20 unique light installations, inspired by the wonderful world of plants
  • compelling (live)music on the track - specially composed for WinterFloridylle by Piet Goddaer
  • free photo shoot with your family or friends in the greenhouse, the Plant Palace
  • Winter village with food+drinks+conviviality
