Grand Place Flower Carpet

Leave a comment

Like every two years since 1971, the Grand Place will be decorated with a giant flower carpet this coming weekend, from August 15 to August 17.

For those of you leaving for the long weekend, you still have a chance to see it starting on Thursday evening at 20:00h. Always worth a peek, especially if you’ve never seen this before.

The Grand Place is of course open and free to access, but for those of you interested in the panoramic visit (available from 9:00h to 23:00h from August 15-17), there is a fee of 3 euro. This is highly recommended if you intend to take good pictures, since it’s hard to do so from the ground.

For more information on the history and photos and videos of the previous editions, check the official website.
