Belgian surrealism at heart of fifth edition of Flowertime in Brussels
The City Hall of Brussels will be bathed in artistic floral creations during the fifth edition of Flowertime, held from 11 to 15 August. The event, which alternates with the Flower Carpet, is dedicated to Belgian surrealism on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the birth of Magritte.
"Brussels is the cradle of surrealism and its worldwide appeal. With Flowertime, we are bringing this heritage back to life this year," says Delphine Houba, president of the Brussels Flower Carpet association and Brussels councillor responsible for Culture, Tourism and Major Events.
Every two years, Flowertime attracts lovers of flowers and Brussels to the City Hall to discover this Unesco World Heritage building in a different way. More than 20 teams of floral artists from Belgium and abroad will decorate the rooms of the City Hall with their most beautiful creations.
Visitors will also have access to the City Hall tower, where they can admire a panoramic view of Brussels. At the same time, from 1 to 15 August, Blossoming Brussels, a free flower walk created during the pandemic, will lead visitors through the streets around the Grand Place.
