christmas markets

You can feel it in the air already… Winter is upon us! And with winter in the Northern hemisphere… comes the thoughts of twinkling lights, festive decorations & mulled wine… all with Christmas & its wonderful festivities in mind!

So you will be pleased to note that as of Friday 28th November until Sunday 4th January – the Winter Wonders have been set up in Brussels!

There is so much to see & experience other than just visiting the Christmas Market wooden chalets in rue Devaux & Place de la Monnaie, namely:

  • Take a ride in the 55m Ferris Wheel
  • Don your ice-skates (or rent a pair) & skate around the Ice Rink at Place de la Monnaie
  • Stand in awe of the 22m festively decorated Christmas Tree (gifted by the City of Riga) in Grand Place – which showcase 1.000 lights!
  • And if lights & music are your thing – stay in Grand Place & enjoy the spectacular Sound & Light show which is performed after 17h00, every hour (during the week until 22h00) & every half hour (during the weekend until 22h30)
  • Visitors can discover the Quebec City through the art installation Boule de Neige (Snowball) & its traditional products market
  • As night falls, an ice fairy (with the help of Electrabel) will light up the façade of the Sainte Catherine Church, transforming it into a gigantic Ice Cathedral with a video mapping 3D show
  •  Or enjoy the Christmas Parade on the 14th December…
  • …. and so much more
