Winter Moments with Flowers, a unique flower event in Bruges, will be held from the 25th to the 29th of November 2016. The historic Old St. John’s hospital will be dressed in unprecedented floral creations by grand masters of the floral art.  This is where one breathes the Christmas atmosphere with creations reflecting the four elements of nature: water, earth, air and fire.

Immediately upon entering the Old St. John’s Hospital, you are immersed in a wintry flower world! In the grand Ambassador Hall, at the very start, you can admire a creation by Tomas de Bruyne, executed by EMC, with which the florist and the executing team are competing for a spot in the Guinness Book of Records. We cannot reveal any details just yet, but we are quite confident that you will hardly be able to take it all in.

From abroad, we welcome a Romanian team led by Ella Fodor, and the Ukrainian team consisting of Dasha Pinalova, Ina Petrenko and Elena Dikaliva.

We are delighted to have Veerle Desmet join us again. Veerle debuted at Winter Moments With Flowers last year and this time is presenting a romantic design. Sebastien Dossin and Dave Van Reeth will also let their creativity run free with the four elements.

And naturally, our regulars Moniek Vanden Berghe, Geert Pattyn, Tom De Houwer, Jan Deridder, Ivan Poelman, Annick Mertens and Charlotte Bartholomé will show us their creations this year. Last but not least, the School for Horticulture of Kortrijk will attend with its innovative creations.


Come and enjoy this spectacular flower show.

Be sure to mark 25th to 29th of November in your calendar. You will get ideas for the holidays, see the latest trends, be able to attend demonstrations or participate in interactive workshops. Besides that, there will be floral shows combined with wonderful live music from the Music Conservatory of Bruges.

There’s more to your ticket than you think!


The admission ticket to Winter Moments with flowers includes free entrance to the “Van Picasso tot Miro” exhibitions – both taking place at Old St. John’s. You will also enjoy discounts at some museums in Bruges, and at the Historium, right up to the 31st of December.
