Carpet of Flowers
Every other summer on a weekend in the middle of August, 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.
Botanic Garden Meise
Enjoy a guided half day visit to The Botanic Garden Meise which is located in the grounds of Bouchout Castle in the town of Meise, just north of Brussels. The gardens cover an area of 92 hectares and hold 18,000 plants from around the world. The castle regularly houses exhibitions and the gardens contain enchanting oak, conifer, magnolia, hydrangea, rhododendron, maple and wild rose collections.
