Fleuramour Alden Biesen - group by coach
Meaning ‘Passion for Flowers’, Fleuramour is one of Europe’s most prestigious floral events and has been a highlight of the ECT tour calendar for many years. Set in the historic grounds of the National Commandery at Alden Biesen in Bilzen, Belgium and hosted by Rekad, publishers of Fleur Créatif magazine, the show takes place every September, attracting exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.
2018's theme was Urban Roots and one of the highlights was Belgian florist Tom de Houwer's masterful creation in the Courtyard of Honour. It was nothing short of miraculous - a breathtaking shape, vibrant colours, delicious floral scents and music inspired by nature.
Around 100 other internationally renowned designers also exhibited, turning the rooms and grounds of this 16th century castle into a dreamy floral sanctuary. French stars Frédéric Dupré and Martine Soulier, Spain's sensational Carles Fontanillas, founder of Floos a Crafter's Secret, and leading Belgian creative Moniek Vanden Berghe. All their designs added to what was one of the most successful and awe-inspiring Fleuramour events.
Fleuramour is more than a beautiful and inspiring flower show, it is also a place to learn. Fleuramour is bursting with demonstrations and workshops where visitors can pick up tips from some of the world’s best floral designers.
Our weekend coach tour is the perfect way to experience this unique event. The schedule gives you a whole day to explore the show and enough time afterwards to enjoy a relaxed evening in one of Hasselt’s many restaurants.
