Bruges Christmas Market Guide

 Bruges is a magical city, especially in the heart winter when its cobbled streets are alive with festivities, glowing with Christmas lights. To add to the atmosphere, an ice rink is built on the Bruges Market Square close to the many food and festive gift stalls, which offer traditional seasonal delights.

Bruges is a unique, ancient, Flemish city with a captivating medieval centre. Much of the architecture is lovingly preserved and the streets are largely traffic free, which makes it a joy to explore on foot. Bruges is also a chocolate lovers' paradise! As well as the numerous chocolate shops, do not miss the Chocolate Museum or Pralinette - Bruges' largest and best praline store.

Also, there is the traditional Vismarkt (fishmarket) and the Lace Museum with samples dating back centuries.
