Europe's Christmas markets
Christmas in Europe is something one has to witness. The Christmas market season starts very soon and I cannot wait as they are wonderful. The bitter cold can be fought off with good food and hot glühwein with cinnamon. Hand made ornaments and gingerbread hang down at almost every table.

Brussels Christmas Market on ice

Large arrow left

The most interesting part of Brussels' Christmas Market is in St Catherine's Square, where there are not only food and drink stalls, as well as those to buy gifts, but also a chance to go ice skating and ride a very big Ferris wheel.

The square is also famous for its excellent seafood restaurants.
