How to reach the Garden | Français | Nederlands

By public transport


Botanic Garden Meise is located in the small village of Meise situated at about 12 km north of the centre of Brussels, just inside the Flemish Region, i.e. outside the area served by the Brussels bus and underground services. The nearest underground station is at the 'Heizel' (also spelled 'Heysel'), the site of the Atomium. The Heizel is, however, at 3 km from the Garden, too far as a walking distance for many.

We recommend coming by the public transport buses of the Flemish Region, called 'De Lijn'. It is recommanded to buy your tickets in a shop rather than aboard buses, it will save you up to 50%.
