The Christmas tree has arrived on the Grand-Place
This morning (November 19), the traditional Christmas tree was set up on the most beautiful square in the world.

The city was still in the dark at 4am this morning when the magnifiscent Christmas tree arrived on the Grand Place from the port of Antwerp.

The 22-meter high tree was cut a week ago in the latvian forest. It then traveled over 2000 km before reaching its destination: Brussels. It first went aboard a ferry in the port of Liepaja. Direction: the port of Travemünde in Germany. It was then sent to Antwerp, before finally reaching the most beautiful plaza in the world: the Grand Place of Brussels.
