Botanical Garden


Leuven’s botanical garden is the oldest one in Belgium.
The university of Leuven created this garden for its students of medicine in 1738.

Botany enthusiasts can enjoy the diverse plant collections. The 450 m² greenhouse complex boasts countless herbaceous, medicinal, aquatic and potted plants as well as a variety of tropical and subtropical species.

Exhibitions take place regularly in the orangery, the gatehouse and in the open air.
