    Bruges is a fantastic destination at any time of year, but at Christmas it comes alive with bustling Christmas Markets that are filled with festive decorations and wonderful souvenirs. As though stepping back in time, we’ll find ourselves surrounded by festive decorations. There will be wooden stalls filled with delicious chocolate treats, as well as the decorative lace Bruges is so well-known for, and much more. While we’re there, we’ll be offered an optional guided walking tour of Bruges to learn more about the local history.

    The next day we’ll travel to Brussels to enjoy the festive atmosphere. With bright Christmas lights, excellent Christmas shops and stalls, and the much-loved Winter Wonderland attraction, this market is one of the best. There will be light and sound shows, a Ferris wheel, an ice rink and more. During this tour, we’ll also be able to enjoy an optional guided coach tour of the market and surrounding areas.
