An idyllic setting for an unforgettable party

Private events

Are you looking for an ideal location for a party to celebrate the most special moments of life: a sparkling baby shower, a princess wedding in the Bouchot Castle, a quest through the Botanic Garden for a cool spring party, or a special birthday? Have you already thought about the “Amaze-Your-Feet” path? 

The green oasis of peace in the Botanic Garden also makes it the ideal place to say goodbye to loved ones. You can end the reception with a comforting walk in nature.

The Botanic Garden is not only an exceptional place, but also a place where we work hard to help protect our green planet. By coming to us, you are also doing your part.

During the venue visit, a feeling of wow, this is the place.
Isabelle and Erik, wedding couple.

Locations in the spotlight  

  • Bouchout Castle: 

Bouchout Castle, located in the heart of the Botanic Garden, has several rooms available with a capacity of 10 to 140 people, a roof terrace, and an inner courtyard. The Castle combines grandeur with a rich history dating back to the 12th century. The Empress Charlotte of Mexico was probably its most famous resident. 

  • The Balat Greenhouse 

The elegant art nouveau Balat Greenhouse, the oldest conservatory in the country, can be hired for parties of up to 50 people. The greenhouse, which appears in our logo, was designed by Alphonse Balat, architect of the Royal Greenhouses in Laeken. The greenhouse is available from mid-June to mid-October.

This 19th century traditional farm, located near the 'Empress Charlotte' entrance, has recently been beautifully renovated and offers a modern multipurpose room. A perfect location for parties and receptions for up to 80 persons.

The Plant Palace is an enchanting location for an evening reception. In winter it’s nice and warm inside in between the tropical plants, and you can enjoy summer weather outside under the canopy with a view of the pond and Bouchot Castle.
