Summery flower magic in the City Hall of Brussels!

The theme of this 5th edition: surrealism

Flowertime is back in 2023 with a very Belgian theme: surrealism.

Artists will be able to give free rein to their imagination, transforming and enchanting the various rooms in the Hôtel de Ville. 

We are proposing a route that will take visitors through the architectural wealth of 15 rooms in the City Hall, while discovering the colourful creations of our Belgian and international florists.

Brussels Flower Carpet and the Floraliën once again join 
forces for Flowertime. A must for every flower or 
architecture lover!



A garden of dreams in the City Hall

Every other summer, in alternation with the Flower Carpet of the Grand-Place, the City Hall of Brussels receives Flowertime.

The enchanting building is transformed into an idyllic place for a stroll.  The entry hall, the corridors, the offices, meeting and reception rooms are adorned with dozens of floral arrangements. Each of them unique and surprising! These magnificently coloured and scented pictures are created by internationally renowned landscape architects and floral artists.


The City Hall of 

A blend of Gothic and classical styles, it is located on the south side of the Grand Place. The Town Hall constitutes the sole medieval vestige of the Grand-Place and is regarded as a masterpiece of Gothic civil architecture, and more particularly of the Brabant Gothic. Its tower is 96 metres high.

... on the worlds’ most beautiful square!

The Grand Place is the historical heart of Brussels. Here Gothic style can be seen adjacent to opulent baroque, neo-classical as well as neo-Gothic. The Grand Place is regarded by its admirers as “the most beautiful central square in the world”! Its construction began in the 15th century, with halis, guild houses and a Town Hall. It was virtually razed after three full days of bombardment by the French Army in 1695, yet was rebuilt in less than five years, notably bt the different guilds.

Since 2000 the entire Grand Place has been listed as a Unesco world heritage site. The floral tour of each Flowertime starts on the Grand Place and takes you along the most beautiful rooms of the City Hall.
