Floralia Brussels will surprise again: from 3 April until 3 May

The castle of Grand-Bigard celebrates spring!

Friday, February 20, 2015 — Especially for the new flowering time, the gardeners of the castle have planted again more than one million bulbs. There are more than 500 varieties of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and other related varieties. The artists have also created a carpet of wild flowers, a heart of different red tulips and a labyrinth in the colours of a rainbow. You will find here the largest Belgian collection of rhododendrons and azaleas from Exbury Gardens (England). In the large greenhouse, you can admire a wide range of flower arrangements realized by florist Hans Danko and his team.

 

NEW

After 6 months of restoration, the Donjon, dated from the 14th century, will be again accessible to its roof terrace from where you can see the Atomium and the basilica of Brussels.

The rooms of each floor will be decorated in different themes.

 

ACTIVITIES

The park will welcome Venetian visitors during the weekend of 18 and 19 April. Twenty costumed characters will parade through the park on Saturday in the afternoon and Sunday the whole day. After the participation at the Carnival of Venice they look forward to presenting you their newest costumes.

In several places young musicians from the Music academy of Dilbeek will entertain the audience with their performances.

The castle of Grand-Bigard may also expect the fanfare on Friday 1 May. Specific details will be announced on our website. Don’t miss it!
