Nowhere does Christmas quite like Brussels. Have you ever seen a 20m high Christmas tree before? Not something you see every day. You’ll join one of our hosts to experience the city as it’s dressed up in all its festive finery, soaking up the magical atmosphere and getting into the festive spirit! There’s the Winter Wonderland Festival, complete with ferris wheels, ice-rinks and huge Christmas markets, or you could opt for a smaller Christmas market where you can wander between charming wooden chalet stalls and indulge in a treat or two like a Belgian waffle. The festive cheer will keep you warm (or maybe it’s the mulled wine) as you wander through the city with your host and see the thousands of glittering lights that adorn the world famous buildings and UNESCO-listed monuments. Sample (we really mean over-indulge, it’s Christmas after all) artisan Belgian chocolates and do some Christmas shopping, glide across an ice-rink (or do your best Bambi impression) and let your host share with you their city’s beloved festive traditions. 

    • Join one of our hosts to discover just how magical Brussels is a Christmas (and eat a few too many Belgian pralines! We won’t judge, it’s Christmas after all)
