After walking most of the city it was nice to relax a while in this beautiful garden. We enjoyed the flowers and wide variety. From fruit trees to cactus. They have it all. Could be great to have a coffee place in here but there are plenty of nice coffee places nearby, they do have free toilets in the gardens... More

The garden is not all that large and may not be well-known but it is a really nice park much loved by the locals too. Worth the short walk there.

Small Botanical garden, but the way it is laid out it appears impressively large, there really is a lot to see I was very impressed by the tidiness and the hot houses. A definite must if in Leuven.

What a beautiful and peaceful place in Leuven! In spring, with all the blossoms it's really nice! A perfect spot to take a break and enjoy the flowers and the sun!

The Botanical garden is not big but you can spend a good hour in there (more if you're really interested in plants and actually read all the info). We had a family picknick in there, which was nice. It is an oasis within the city centre. I would not rank it in the top priorities if you have only one... More

This garden deserves a daily visit while you are in Leuven. Each day something new pops up and the collection of plants is gorgeous and the garden is beautifully maintained. It is centrally located, easy to walk to from most of Leuven and open daily. I loved visiting it everyday for two weeks in February. I imagine it even more... More

No dogs allowed here. The location is very central. This place is informative. During winter season, you may not see a lot of its flowers but the place is still very beautiful. It is a good way to walk or just to have a great conversation with your friends. Tranquility is the word!
