Fleuramour – Escape from Reality and Experience the Floral Magic
Full of natural beauty, magic and more than 150,000 flowers
In the castle estate of Alden Biesen, in Bilzen, Belgium, a floral utopia is coming in September 2021. Celebrating their silver jubilee, Fleuramour will unleash fantasy-like realm of natural wonders and beauty consisting of over 150,000 flowers. You will be able to enjoy a beautiful ‘floral show’ and a cosy pop-up market. Whilst here, you won’t know where to look first. Romantic roses, graceful lilies and 100 other flower varieties, processed in hundreds of unique flower creations from lovely small to insanely large, find a way to your heart showcasing the magical work of some of the world’s most impressive flower artists.
Year after year, the Fleuramour Pop-Up Market has become bigger and bigger so that it has become an attraction in his own right. The market leads you along a hundred stalls selling the most beautiful and delicious merchandise. From jewellery and textiles to home decoration and green materials to yummy delicacies. The intoxicating aura of the event will be an experience not to miss! Furthermore, let the flowers, music and light overwhelm you during the illustrious Floral Show. A series of delighted oohs and wows will be set off once the models put on their most beautiful floral outfit.
As well as this, being based in cross-border county of Limburg, why not stay in Valkenburg at a Greatdays Favourite, the Walram, a wonderful hotel in a perfect location to visit the Benelux and western Germany.
