I confess – I 💖 the holidays — the twinkling lights, the bustle of shopping, festivities, parties — and spending time with the family. That’s why my travel bucket list includes a winter visit to experience the Christmas Markets of Europe — and that’s from me, who is not a fan of winter.
Need a Reason to Visit? Christmas Markets of Europe
The months of November and December bring some of the world’s most storied Christmas markets to Europe. Visitors get the opportunity to experience the sense of community and holiday spirit these open-air markets have to offer, as well as unparalleled shopping and endless options for seasonal food and drink.
The Winter Wonders event in Brussels is one of the most sought-after stops by visitors. From November 24-December 31, the event features a Christmas Market with over 200 chalets, a Ferris wheel, merry-go-rounds, an ice rink, and a sound and light show on the Grand-Place. Stalls often sell a collection of handcrafted goods, food, and mulled wine.
