The Botanique (French) or Kruidtuin (Dutch) metro station is a Brussels metro station on the northern segment of line 2. It opened serving a premetro line on 18 August 1974 and became a full metro station on 2 October 1988. The station is located under the small ring at King Street in the municipality of the Saint-Josse-ten-Noode. The national botanical garden for which the area is named was moved in the 1930s but the name Le Botanique and a complex of gardens is still used by the French cultural centre in the area.
