Christmas Markets

If you want to get into the Christmas spirit of Brussels, be sure to visit one of the many Christmas markets. They are without a doubt as diversified as the city in which they are held. 

There is ample choice of Christmas markets, it all depends on what you are looking for. Do you fancy something traditional, artisanal, gastronomic or what you will, as long as you remain covered under a tent? Fond of alternative and vintage markets? The Brussels Christmas markets have something in store for everyone.

And they can be found all over the city: from the cobblestones of the Grand Place to the lanes of the green city quarters, even in the enchanting surroundings of a fairytale castle!

 We are happy to present you our selection of Brussels Christmas markets.
