Airport - Bouchout Castle (Botanic Garden Meise)

by public transport

The bus stop is located on the ground level of the airport. In the middle of the bus station the buses of the 'De Lijn' company (yellow logo) depart. The journey will take approximately one hour. You can take one of the following lines:

  • Bus '821 (Zaventem-Vilvoorde-Grimbergen-Merchtem)'. Ask the driver to stop at 'Meise Boechtstraat'. The nearest entrance is entrance B (Meise-village) and not the main entrance (about 1 km further on).
  • Bus '820 (Zaventem-Vilvoorde-Jette AZ-VUB-Dilbeek)'. Take this bus to the Vilvoorde railway station and the change into the bus '821 to 'Meise Boechtstraat'.

by taxi

Licensed taxis can be recognized by the blue and yellow emblem. The fare from the airport to the Botanic Garden Meise will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes and costs about 35 to 45 Euro.

Make sure the taxi driver brings you to the Botanic Garden in MEISE. Often taxi drivers bring foreign visitors to our former buildings in town (Brussels). In these buildings the cultural centre of the French-speaking community is housed. Due to the fact that this cultural centre retained the name 'Le Botanique' the mistake continues to be made, although we moved out about 30 years ago!
