If you are anywhere near Belgium in August (or maybe you’re still making summer travel plans) put this on your agenda….
Mostly begonias, the flowers are laid out by hand in a carpet-like pattern that changes every time. Combined with the spectacular architecture of the Grand Place, it makes for a stunning display.
It’s free to walk around and admire the carpet, or for a few Euro, you can climb up to a balcony on the first floor of the Town Hall, to see the intricate pattern from above.
If possible, try to see it on one of the first days, while the colors are at their brightest.
