The Palace of Laeken was built in the late 18th century as summer residence for the governors of the Austrian Netherlands. Napoleon stayed in the palace in 1804. Since the Belgian independence this palace serves as the official residence of the King of the Belgians. The famous royal greenhouses were build by Leopold II between 1874 and 1895. The total floor area of the greenhouse complex comprises 2.5 hectares.

Photography Tips

The first photo is the only one you can get in normal conditions, bring a longer lens (70-200 for example). The fa├žade faces northwest so afternoon/evening would be best. For a few weeks each year at the end of may-beginning of june the greenhouses and part of the royal gardens are open to the public. This is the only opportunity to photograph more of the palace complex. There is an official route you have to follow so the views you can get depend on this route. Big bags or tripods are not allowed. More info can be found on https://www.koninklijke-serres-royales.be/
