Hortus Botanicus Lovaniensis Leuven Reviews
A splash of colour Mar 01, 2009
The Leuven Botanic Gardens are the oldest in Belgium, founded in 1738. There are small ponds, herb gardens, greenhouses and hidden statues, making a very pleasant walk. A field of crocus, with their delicate white and purple flowers, must be the most colour I have seen in Belgium since arriving. Does this mean spring is on the way? Maybe not, since some species of crocus flower in autumn and last until the end of winter.
October - April : 08:00-17:00
May-Sept : 08:00-20:00
on Sundays and public holidays the garden opens at 09:00.
