Christmas Markets / Belgium

Brussels and Bruges Christmas Markets


Belgian christmas markets are like no other with an abundance of chocolatiers, lace shops and bars selling their exquisite products. In this trip you will visit the incredible Christmas markets of Brussels and Bruges, experiencing the best of what each market has to offer.

In its thirteenth year, Brussels’ Winter Wonders has become one of the city’s unmissable annual festivals. The Christmas markets, voted amongst the best in Europe, offer a wide selection of stalls. Including an ice rink and ferris wheel centred around the festively decorated Place Sainte Catherine. You will also find their smaller markets amongst the lumière illuminations of Grand Place and the Fish market.

Bruges has a fairytale feel, with lots of cosy Christmas markets prettily situated in ornate squares alongside the picturesque canals. Their beautiful ice rinks perfectly nestled amongst the festive atmosphere of the market, it will be hard to resist enjoying a skate.

Additionally on the last day we include a short visit to the historic Ghent, a city with charming canals, ornate architecture and the most listed buildings in Belgium. Join us on this great value and popular journey around the best of Belgium.
