Become a Friend of the Garden, so many benefits
Friends of the Garden
Friends of the Garden have access to the grounds, the Plant Palace, exhibitions and the library for a whole year during opening times.
Friends of the Garden enjoy a discount at evening events such as the WinterFloridylle, and a number of exclusive benefits. Also, making someone a Friend of the Garden is a great idea for a gift.
There are two formulas: either for yourself, or for yourself and 3 other people who can accompany you to the Botanic Garden or to one of our activities. It doesn’t have to be the same people every time.
Friend of the Garden 1 * : € 30
Friend of the Garden 1 + 3 * : € 50
*Other rates apply for some events. Meise Botanic Garden is open every day except on Christmas Day, on New Year's Day and on the first working day of the year. The botanical garden can be closed due to stormy weather. During the "Wonderweekend" the friends card is not valid; friends can still participate at the "Wonder weekend" rate with a discount.
