Become a Friend of the Garden
Update 9 June: as a Friend of the Botanic Garden, you no longer need to reserve a ticket or time slot.
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.
We cherish the ambassadors of our Botanic Garden! Your contribution helps us to do even better in our research, collection management and visitor offerings. Join us and let our group of friends grow!

For proud grandparents with a Friends Pass, we have worked out a nice formula: a handy pass for 10 times access that is valid for one year. You pay €20. This enables you to visit ten times with one grandchild or once with ten grandchildren :-). The Grandchildren's Pass is only for sale at the cash desk upon presentation of your Friends Pass. The The Grandchildren's Pass is not valid for special events.
