Brussels City Hall flooded by flowers and fruits

The historic halls and rooms of Brussels City Hall are bathing in flowers and fruits. As of today, visitors can experience Flowertime there, the biennial flower expo that showers the beating heart of Brussels in blooms and blossoms. The creations of more than twenty leading florists from Belgium can still be admired until 15 August.

Flowers and fruits

The theme of Flowertime’s third edition is flowers and fruits. Major names such as Tom Nackaerts, Mark Colle, Ness Klorofyl and Chantal Post have been working around the theme to transform the rooms of Brussels City Hall, which are exceptionally open to visitors during Flowertime, into a genuine floral paradise with a fruity touch.

Small carpets on the Grand-Place

The Grand-Place will also be bathing in the scents and fragrances of flowers and fruits during the days ahead. Dozens of children have been laying out three small carpets of flowers and vegetables in the course of this morning. Team members of the association of the Brussels Flower Carpet have been lending them a hand, ensuring that the tradition of laying out flower carpets is passed on to the next generation.

The carpets can still be viewed for free until Tuesday 15 August.

About Flowertime

Flowertime is a biennial initiative that was launched in 2013 by the City of Brussels and the ASBL (non-profit organisation) Tapis de Fleurs de Bruxelles. This major international flower show inside Brussels City Hall is organised every other year, in alternation with the Flower Carpet on the Brussels Grand Place. The artistic direction of the event is in the hands of the world-famous FloraliĆ«n.
