Floralia Brussels is one of the most popular flower trips in Belgium. Each year the Spring Flower Show attracts more than 35 000 visitors. Everyone can enjoy the flower beauty in the 14 ha park, greenhouse, Donjon and chapel of the castle of Groot-Bijgaarden.
The spring flower exhibition in the park and the greenhouses of the castle of Grand Bigard (Groot-Bijgaarden) offers an unforgettable flower experience. The park of 14 hectares incorporates nearly all spring bulb varieties. For the new flowering time, the gardeners of the castle have planted by hand more than one million bulbs. Special attention goes to the tulips, with almost 400 varieties, hyacinths and daffodils are also well represented.
The design and the realization of the Flower Show in Grand Bigard has been taken care by Maarten Bakker, descendant of a famous family of bulb producers in the Netherlands. He looks always for the most interesting varieties and the creation of the flowerbeds. He searches across the Netherlands in order to find the most beautiful species and the most talented producers. Maarten composes the different gardens while taking the diversity of the colours as well as their time of blooming into account.
There is also a prestigious indoor exhibition in the 1000 m2 newly restored greenhouse. The flower beds and mostly the flower arrangements will be changed each week. About 150 creations reflecting the trends and current fashions will be presented in a beautiful indoor garden.
