Overview

The Groot-Bijgaarden castle is beautifully lit

The idea is that you can walk through the 4 seasons

It can be very muddy. You need to wear wellies to leave unscathed. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂

This is not very kids friendly either, the only part our kids enjoyed was looking for the little animals around the bushes, but got scared before they got there

While the concept is good, the execution is rather poor, especially compared to other similar events we have visited in the past like Lanterna Magica

Nearby

Châlet du Laerbeek is nearby and the playground there is great. There is also a brasserie with a smaller playground right next to it and forest to walk around

Floralia also takes place at the Groot-Bijgaarden castle in spring
