This great folkloric procession is one of the most important events in Brussels history and culture. Because the Ommegang recreates a famous celebration organised in 1549 on the Grand’Place in honour of Charles V and his son Philippe II. The whole of the royal court parades before your eyes in all its finery: more than 1,000 extras in period costume, dozens of horses, carts and giants. Horse-drawn carriages and flag throwers are also at the party in the magical setting of the Grand-Place. When: June 29 and July 1, 2022 - 8:45 pm.
