Brussels [ENA] 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.

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. The programme of events for the Charles V Festival is part of the ‘European routes of Emperor Charles V’ cultural network. This itinerary, for tourists and history buffs alike, is recognised by the European Institute of Cultural Routes, an association of the Council of Europe. It brings together the places that characterised the reign of Charles V and the cities that he visited.

A series of festive, cultural and family events organised in various places in the Brussels Capital Region throws the spotlight on European history and the heritage of the 16th century, as a result. Through exhibitions and festivities, visitors can relive different key moments during the reign of Charles V. This year, in order to mark the 450th anniversary of the death of the great Flemish master painter Bruegel, visitors will be able to enjoy a number of original exhibitions and activities during the festival. This will be a wonderful opportunity to (re)discover the monumental body of work of the greatest Flemish painter of the 16th century.

Relive the procession organised by the city of Brussels in 1549 for Charles V and his son, the future Philip II! 1,400 participants have made it their mission to recreate a historic moment in the streets of Brussels. Musicians, singers, dancers, horse riders, guards in uniform, flag-bearers and more will all help create a Renaissance atmosphere in our local area. Charles V's carriage will leave at around 20:15 from his former Brussels Palace in the Place Royale. Historic groups will set off from the Royal Park (Parc Royal) at around 20:45 in order to join the guilds of crossbowmen, archers, harquebusiers and fencers in the Sablon.
