Brussels Christmas Market break
Head to Brussels’ famous Christmas Markets and pick up some of your Christmas shopping in an exciting, festive atmosphere for the perfect winter break. Despite being a modern and progressive city, Brussels is still based around a beautiful medieval core, the perfect setting for a Christmas break.
Belgium's vibrant capital is a city of Art Nouveau heritage, excellent shopping and fine restaurants. Brussels is rapidly becoming one of Europe's favourite weekend getaway spots, and a centre for European culture, which is fitting given its position as the home of European politics. The city has over 90 museums, beautiful parks and walks and trendy bars, as well as classic Belgian attractions... chocolate, chips and beer!
