Christmas tree at the Grand-Place
The Christmas tree was installed on Thursday morning 22 November 2018. This year, the tree is donated by Wallonia.
The fir, which has a height of 22 meters, was selected in the forest of the Western Hertogenwald in Baelen, in a PEFC certified forest.
Colours of Finland
The decorations will be brought to Brussels with the help of 4 trucks on 24 and 25 November. No less than 8 people will adorn the tree with almost 200 white and blue baubles, a white tinsel wreath of 1,8 km and 40 blue pearl lights. In this way, the Christmas tree will represent the colours of Finland, this year's guest country of Winter Wonders.
