Come and admire the Flower Carpet in the Grand-Place in Brussels on 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 August 2012.
From 9 am to 11 pm: a panoramic view from the balcony of the Hotel de Ville (except for Sunday 19, closure at 6 pm).
Every evening at 10.00 pm, 10.30 pm and 11.00 pm: sound and light.
This summer, you will have the chance to escape to faraway lands, while staying at the heart of our capital city. No need for any philtre or strange potion to get there… The magic will work on its own and when you visit the Grand-Place, you will be transported to the centre of a mysterious continent: Africa! An extraordinary tapestry of shimmering patterns recalling designs from the tribes of Ethiopia, Congo, Nigeria, Botswana, and Cameroun, a harmonious fusion which will carry you away for a magnificent trip.
Such a breath-taking result takes months of preparation. Landscape architects, technicians and hundreds of voluntary participants, colour specialists for the occasion, took part in this most unusual adventure. This extraordinary weaving of begonias will be exhibited during 5 long days. A mad challenge for an unforgettable event, which you will be able to admire from the Grand-Place or the balconies of the town Hall. All roads lead to this multicoloured rendezvous.
