The 2019 edition of Ommegang will be held in Brussels, as usual, between June 26th and 28th.
This event recreates a famous celebration organized in 1549 on the Grand Place in honor of Charles V and his son Philip II. Thus, year after year, more than 1,600 volunteer extras take part in the parade of the royal court of Carlos V before the spectators present.
It's an event in which they present themselves, enjoy everything, relate to the Emperor Charles V, among those who show up at the exhibition of costumes of the time, horses, cars and giants, horse-drawn carriages and pitchers of flags.
We must remember that Ommegang is part of our routes, which also belong to the city of Brussels and the Ommegang Association. An event, in short, designed for the whole family, and with activities that will delight both large and small.
