Let the festivities begin with a visit to two of Belgium’s most historic and beautiful cities! Each year both Ypres and Bruges are transformed with twinkling Christmas lights and traditional wooden chalets selling Christmas goodies.
We stay at the beautiful fortified city of YPRES, boasting a rich history and many well known landmarks. Discover the Grote Market, the Cloth Hall, the magnificent St Marin’s Cathedral and the Menin Gate Memorial. Here the poignant ‘Last Post’ ceremony takes place every night at 8pm.
What better way to shop for unusual Christmas gift ideas than by browsing the cosy Christmassy chalets selling an abundance of wonderful gift ideas.
The historic city of BRUGES is a delight to visit at any time of the year with its beautiful canals, medieval buildings and horse-drawn carriages.
Bruges Christmas Market is probably the most atmospheric of all, it has a welcoming seasonal cheer which takes you right back to your childhood. From the tantalising smell of fresh waffles to the twinkling fairy-lights reflected in the canal. Here traditional chalets sell hand crafted gifts, sweets and Belgium chocolates.
