Botanical Garden of Brussels

The Botanical Garden of Brussels (French: Jardin botanique de Bruxelles, Dutch: Kruidtuin van Brussel) stood on Rue Royale/Koningsstraat in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, near Brussels’ Northern Quarter financial district. The main building is now a cultural complex and music venue known as Le Botanique. It can be accessed from Botanique/Kruidtuin metro station on lines 2 and 6 of the Brussels metro.

A first plant garden (Jardin des plantes) existed since the French rule of Belgium in 1797, at a different location, along Brussels' first wall, in the Hôtel de Nassau—a building belonging to the former Palace of Coudenberg—and in its garden. The collection of native and exotic species quickly attracted interest, but due to the growth of the city and the threat of destruction of the city walls, this garden had to be relocated to its current area near the Northern Quarter.
