Ommegang Procession
All Day

Map Unavailable

This moving, colourful event takes place on not one date but two! On 1 and 3 July, you get the chance to relive the procession that was organized in 1549 for Charles V and his son Philip II. Over 1,400 extras will join forces to bring a historical era back to life: musicians, singers, dancers, knights, horsemen, uniformed guards, flag-bearers, and people in medieval costumes, all of them contributing to the Renaissance atmosphere. The carriage of Charles V leaves from Place Royale at 20h00. After passing the Sablon, the Emperor and his son will join the court on the Grand’ Place. The rest of the procession will then also join them on the Grand’ Place, where the show will start at 21h00 and finish at around 23h00. Tuesday 1 July and Thursday 3 July 2014. Free procession through the streets of Brussels. Tickets:
