Brussels Carpet of Flowers: Friday 14th – Monday 17th August. Every two years in Belgium, the ancient Grand Place in the heart of Brussels is transformed with an explosion of ﬂoral colour and fragrant scents. Grown especially for the event, a vast carpet of beautiful, fresh begonias are set up in patterns to create a spectacular, awe-inspiring display under a magniﬁcent and distinguished backdrop, which really must be seen to be believed. This marvellous, multi-coloured plant tapestry can be admired best from the balcony of the City Hall, open to visitors during the weekend. The rest of the day is free at leisure in Brussels. You may wish to explore the shops or just relax with a good cup of coffee and watch the world go by. Don’t forget to tickle your taste buds with a delicious Belgium waffle or perhaps you would rather sample one or two of over 600 varieties of Belgium Beers!
