Flower Carpet

Every other summer, on the weekend of August 15th, the Flower Carpet offers a chance to stroll across the Grand-Place, a jewel of Gothic architecture, to inhale the fragrant scent of the begonias and admire its details. This extraordinary spectacle is made complete by a visit to the balcony of the Town Hall, which offers a wide-angle view of the work. A musical theme is especially composed for each edition.

A concert is given on the Grand-Place every evening and accompanies a magnificent sound-and-light show.
The Flower Carpet is 75 m long by 24 m wide. 1,800 m2 of begonias, around 300 cut flowers per m2!
A hundred volunteers assemble the carpet in 4 hours.

The first Flower Carpet of Brussels was created in 1971 and has been a show stopper every two years on the Grand-Place since 1986.

Flower time (biennial) – From 13 to 16 August Every Two Years

Every other summer, in alternation with the Flower Carpet of the Grand-Place, the Town Hall of Brussels receives Flower time. So flower lovers have a floral rendezvous in Brussels each year. For the occasion, the enchanting Town hall is transformed into an idyllic place for a stroll. The entry hall, the corridors, the offices, meeting and reception rooms are adorned with dozen of floral arrangements, each of them unique and surprising. These magnificently coloured and scented pictures are created by internationally renowned landscape architects and floral artists. They offer visitors a chance to admire what’s new, and what are the trends and flowers of the moment.
