Two hours before the Ommegang, you get to see the final preparations for this commemorative spectacle. Prepare for a first-hand experience, with your guide on hand to explain the background of the Grand Serment (Great Guild) of the crossbowmen, sword fights on horseback, the guilds of the day, the rites of Charles V’s court and more. And after this introduction, we invite you to see the Ommegang pageant set out on its way to the city centre.
Les Coulisses de l'Ommegang
Location: Place Royale, sous le portique de l'église Saint-Jacq, 1000 Brussels
