This annual event recalls the ceremonial arrival of Emperor Charles V and his son (later King Philip II of Spain) in Brussels (then a major Habsburg capital) in 1549 and the even earlier transfer of a miraculous image of Mary from Antwerp. The parade features an array of historic costumes and dances, with traditional flag-waving, drummers, and more. The Ommegang takes place on a Tuesday and a Thursday. In the afternoon and evening, there are tournaments on the Sablon/Zavel.
