The term Ommegang: "walking aroud" in Old Flemish, Ommegang pageant reflects an important moment of our history which we want to perpetuate as it continues to bear witness to our grandeur: we welcomed the greatest Emperor of all times and showed him we could give a reception worthy of that immense noblemen.

Today, this annual commemoration is a high moment of the historical-cultural life of the Belgian capital: a pageant of 1,400 extras, including more than 38 folkloric and historical groups, 40 horses, a traveling puppet theater and nine giants.

700 of these extras parade through the streets of Brussels, starting from the Grand Sablon and ended in apotheosis in the sumptuous setting of the Grand Place.

 

Our purpose is to make our compatriots aware of their national history, to inform them and document them on their past so that they can better understand their future.
To visitors, we offer a historical portrait of our country and the role it played at all levels : history, economy, the arts, culture, etc.

You will see the major efforts devoted to reconstituting that memorable day of 2nd June 1549, wich made our Ommegang an event of prime importance. It consistently attracts large crowds and implies a lot of social-economic advantages for our City and our country.
