Dinner Ommegang 2013
On Tuesday 2 and Thursday 4 July 2013, the oldest festivities in Brussels will take place: the Ommegang. Like last year, VISITBRUSSELS offers an exceptional combined ticket: special menu served in the sumptuous underground galleries of the Coudenberg & the Ommegang show ... A delicious event not to be missed!
In Old Flemish, Ommegang literally means "to walk around". This festival is the oldest historical evocation of Brussels.
Dating back to the 15th century, it was originally a procession of gratitude to Notre-Dame du Sablon. Since 1549, it commemorates the Joyful Entry of Charles V
Nowadays, the reconstruction of the show that was given in his honor brings together no less than 1,400 extras, 38 folk and historical groups, 40 horses, a traveling puppet theater and 9 giants (the Archangel Saint-Michel, Sainte-Gudule, the Bayard horse ...)
On July 2 and 4, a period menu will be offered from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the underground galleries of Coudenberg. After this meal and a tour of the galleries, you will be invited to join the opening of the festivities. The Ommegang procession will start at 8:00 p.m. sharp from Place Royale on its way to Grand Place, where, an hour later, the festivities will continue.
