Save the date: next weekend, the Grand Place will be covered by its famous flower carpet. You have three days only to see this beautiful exhibit that covers the city’s main square every two years.
The festivities will start in the evening of August 12 (by invitation only, except for the fireworks, which start at 22:00h) and the flower carpet will be open for public view from August 13 to August 15. The viewing is free, but if you want a better view, you can pay 3 euros to go up one of the buildings to get a panoramic view (you will see signs indicating exactly which one).
All the details are on the official site.
