Beautiful Ommegang!


Every year, Brussels celebrates the anniversary of the welcome procession of Charles V (known as Charles Quint) . Fire jugglers, acrobats, tale-tellers, dancers, flagthrowers are all in for a spectacular show on the most beautiful square of the world ( All right, confession time, my belgian ancestors helped rebuilding the square after it was bombed by french troops in 1695. Something I’m quite proud of)

This year was kind of special because Belgian national football team played Brazil and all the city was on football mode…even reenactors were watching the game on not-so-16th century smartphones in backstages. The show was even interrupted when Belgium scored against Brazil to announce the score 🙂

If you’re in Brussels that time of the year,you should definitively check it out!
