    Orangerie

    The orangerie is the building that will let you enter the royal greenhouses and the royal park.
    It will also be the building you visit last, on your way out.
    Here you will find little orange trees :-)
    and stands were you can buy postcards and catalogues.
    the public toilets are here as well.

    Royal greenhouse, azaleo hall

    The royal greenhouses are divided in different parts.

    Lots of people take a deep breath and trying to inhale the scent of the flowers.
    I didn't do, you never know if one might get a yellow nose from those lilies `-)
    but I did take a closer look!

    royal park at Laeken

    The park looks enless.
    When I was there, there were little yellow flags on certain spots, maybe this garden is a (royal) golf area as well?
