Become a Friend of the Garden

Do you love Meise Botanic Garden and do you regularly visit to enjoy our green oasis? Then a Friends Pass is really the answer for you. As a friend you will have access to the Botanic Garden for a year. So much to discover in every season! In addition, you have many exclusive benefits, such as 1 hour earlier access to the park!

Also a great idea for a gift!

There are different formulas: treat yourself, each other or your family to a year of botanics fun! For grandparents there is the Grandchildren Pass, a handy pass for 10 times access.
