Living in Brussels gets special glow in the time of Christmas. There are many Winter Wonders and of course the Christmas Market where local delicious smell at long distance 🙂

Usually the Winter wonders (fra. Plaisirs d’Hiver) stretche over 2.5km through the Grand Place, the Bourse, Place Ste Catherine, the fish market and Henri Maus and Bouse-de-Brouckère streets.

At Grand Place there are christmas lights combined with the music. It runs every hour and makes you part of the fairytale. The main Christmas tree is there too,more then 20 m high! 🙂 A great shopping could be done around with buying some beer, waffles, chocolates, pralines and of course the famous belgian fries that will delight foodies.

Street decorations are the special part of luxury.

Christmas market starts around the Bourse with small houses and some benches to sit down or bar tables to stand around. If you are cold – don’t worry, the heat from the wooden christmas houses and some heaters above are enough to keep you warm around heart and your body itself.

The best part is at the Place St Catherine! At the facade of the church is a ligt show as well but more a representation of the cartoon. This year the Japan was in the spot of the story. St Catherine’s Square was transformed into a winter wonderland with the festival featured an ice rink, gift stalls, a craft fair, Santa’s Grotto, funfair, and choirs and brass bands performing your favourite Christmas carols!

Royal Sint Hubert Gallery is the story for itself:

  1. Ahhh Belgium in general truly got one great Christmas season! My boyfriend is from Gent and he took so much beautiful photographs from the city. Seeing now in Brussels that they also have an amazing Christmas makes me want to go back there, especially in Bruges! Really wish to be there next time!
