The 4 unmissable activities of Winter Wonders

Credit where credit is due, the beating heart of Brussels is Winter Wonders, with its cosy chalets.

On foot, by bike or in the metro, come and enjoy the excitement of the big wheel; the icy pleasure of the ice-skating rink; finding that ideal present, the scent of mulled wine, the perfumes and flavours of far away places. Make your way down to the Grand-Place to see how you measure up to the majestic Christmas tree and marvel in awe at the dazzling sound and lights show.

Here is our selection of the 4 activities at Winter Wonders that you can't afford to miss:

  • The big wheel

    Sheltered from the winter wind, the Winter Wonders big wheel carries you off on a voyage into the clouds! Take your seat and admire the panoramic view. From up there you can see the whole of Brussels in all its winter splendour.

  • The ice-skating rink

    Come and enjoy a magical moment at the Winter Wonders ice-skating rink: a perfect ice-skating rink, a special area for children and a welcoming terrace await you opposite the majestic Monnaie theatre … what a delight!

  • Sound & lights

    When the sun goes down, make your way to the Grand-Place for a moment of pure magic: alongside the majestic illuminated Christmas tree, a dazzling sound and lights show that will leave young and old aghast with wonder.

  • The Christmas market

    Winter Wonders enchants the historical centre of Brussels with its Christmas market.
    Walk your way throught the rows of wooden chalets and let yourself be guided by the scents of chocolate and mulled wine. Uncover the ideal present sold by passionate artisan, and stop for bite to eat: tartiflettes, waffles and other comforting delicacies.
