Where to go to feel the Christmas vibe!


Damn it’s cold, I know. But who isn’t happy to see this beautiful wild white world when opening their shutters in the morning? Snow makes it like Christmas is coming, so let’s talk about it.

As a Frenchie living her first Christmas in Brussels, I had one big expectation: the Christmas Market and all the magic around it.

So far, I haven’t been disappointed by « Winter Wonders », the Christmas market in Brussels. You can get really tipsy (not to say drunk) with glühwein, eat some wonderful tartiflette, admire the parades of some acrobats, step on the illuminated big wheel, watch the sound and light show « Brussels Christmas with Sia » in the Grand-Place, ice skate Place de la Monnaie and way more!

But if the Christmas Market isn’t enough for you, here is a selection of Christmassy events in Brussels and the area.
