Coronavirus measures

The City of Brussels has taken several decisions in order to best respect the measures of the federal government in the fight against the coronavirus (Covid-19). More info: coronavirus measures by the City of Brussels.


Christmas tree at the Grand-Place

The Christmas tree at the Grand-Place of Brussels has been installed on Thursday 21 November 2019. This year, the tree was donated by the City of Stavelot.

The entire Stavelot forest is PEFC certified (a label for sustainably managed forests). The Nordmann pine (Abies nordmanniana), about 50 years old, has already ensured his succession because it has already produced two young plants. In addition, the City of Stavelot will also plant a Nordmann of the same quality.

Decorations celebrating Manneken-Pis

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Manneken-Pis, the Christmas tree will be decorated with the colors of the Belgian flag. The decoration consists of 40 red lights, 120 balls with the national colors, a 1.5 km long garland and 50 small figurines of Manneken-Pis.
