Forest bathing (Dutch guide)

Enjoy with all your senses
Sun 8 Sep and Sun 20 Oct
8 Sep
20 Oct

This is an activity in Dutch!


Give yourself a present and enjoy with all your senses a forest bath in Meise Botanic Garden. This time we are not going to explore the plant or animal world. We invite you to slow down and to appeal to your imagination. Shifting your attention to forest and trees calms the mind and is a good diversion. Forest bathing is going “back to basics”. In the magnificent nature of the Botanic Garden you are guided by your senses. Enchanted by the simplicity and the moment itself you experience the healing effects of nature.


!!! Since we really dive into the forest during the forest bath, it is advisable to wear long trousers, socks and sporty footwear. This will protect you from ticks and other pests.
