Carolus V Festival : Exhibitions and Ommegang festivities
Brussels, 29 April 2019
Charles V Festival
Brussels during the Renaissance
From May to September, the Charles V Festival is a chance for Brussels to recapture the spirit of the Renaissance. Exhibitions and Ommegang festivities, which are just some of the many activities organised, take visitors back in time to the era of Charles V, the most powerful emperor of the 16th century. This year, in order to mark the 450th anniversary of the death of the great Flemish master painter Bruegel, a number of new exhibitions and activities have been added to the extensive festival programme.
