Hi everyone, Every year, right before Christmas, the Christmas markets start to open. In Belgium, you can find one in almost every village you’ll go to! But, let me introduce you to my top three Christmas markets:
1. Hasselt Winter Wonderland: Christmas-music everywhere (especially tracks from Home Alone, which made it all a lot more fun), more food than you’d be able to eat, a lot of hot and cold ((non-)alcoholic) drinks, attractions like rollercoasters and ghoast houses and… drumrolls… even a big ice skating area! And all of that in the middle of wooden cabins and an overdose of Christmas-lights. Imagine going here right after the snow hits town! So incredibly beautiful… And oh, have I mentioned the huge mistletoe at the entrance?
2. Antwerp Christmas Market: A lot of small cute shops and beverages around an ice skating circuit joined by a ferris wheel, which makes it possible for you to look over Antwerp and it’s Christmas market! Did I mention this market is placed right in between the biggest squares (yes, multiple) of Antwerp?
3. Brussels Christmas Market: It’s a huge beautiful area that’s filled with Christmas goodies. Not only that, but starting at 18:00 hours, you can find an amazing light-construction (which is about 15 minutes long and repeats itself almost the whole evening) on the sides of all the building surrounding the market.
So, if you haven’t found your Christmas-spirit yet… I think these markets might have yours!
