Royal Greenhouses

2015

Designed by architect Balat (Victor Horta’s teacher) the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken are some of Brussels’ most remarkable monuments They were built between 1874 and 1895 and commissoned by King Leopold II. The highly impressive greenhouses with their ironwork frames are home to a charming range of flora and many rare species. The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). The complex can only be visited during a three-week period in April–May each year, when most flowers are in full bloom. Karin Borghouts photographed in the Royal Greenhouses since 2010. A new guide (BAI publishers) in 4 languages is published in 2015 as well as many new postcards, posters etc.
