Enjoy the incredible floral display of the Brussels Carpet of Flowers on this short break to Belgium, including visits to Bruges and Ghent.
Local departure by coach, then to Brussels for a three-night stay.
Day 2 Brussels
We spend the day in Brussels, Belgium’s cosmopolitan capital, where you can enjoy its Gothic architectural treasures and multicultural roots.
The highlight of the day is the Carpet of Flowers exhibition. Once you pass through one of the seven entrances to the Grand Place, you will be presented with an extraordinary spectacle. Stretching out over 300 square metres, the magnificent floral display, made up of begonias, dahlias, grasses and bark, glows with colour and intricate detail. It takes months of preparation but has to be put in place in just one day. The best views are gained from the balcony of the city hall (entrance at additional cost).
Day 3 Bruges and Ghent
Today we visit the medieval city of Bruges, famed for its canals crossed by pretty hump-backed bridges, cobbled streets and charming atmosphere. With shops selling the famous Belgian chocolate on almost every corner, there’s definitely time to sample the delights and purchase a few treats to take home!
Later, we head to Ghent. Affectionately known as the ‘Flower Capital of Belgium’, Ghent is a city of great elegance, boasting a wonderful legacy of medieval architecture and imposing monuments.
