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 light up the long winter evenings with imaginative installations created especially for the occasion. Stroll the illuminated Island Garden, through the fairytale bamboo forest and discover the Plant Palace by night.

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

  • 20 unique light installations, inspired by the wonderful world of plants
  • compelling music on the track - specially composed for WinterFloridylle by Piet Goddaer
  • a wonderful evening with the whole family
  • Winter village with food+drinks+conviviality
