Grand Place Christmas markets
Brussels’ annual calendar offers a huge number of culturally rich events for visitors, and the Plaisirs d'Hiver, a famous Christmas market also known as Winter Wonders, is no exception. Perfectly placed in the heart of the city, Plaisirs d'Hiver will bring back happy memories of Christmases past. Every year this white themed market kicks off with huge, illuminated barley sugars around the fairy-tale Christmas tree turning the market into the most beautiful theater in the world.
This event’s two best attractions are always popular with fans of every age. Take the Big Wheel that floats you over the city to discover the winter wonder from above, or glide around the 60 meter ice skating rink. You can also grab a bite to eat at the market's brasserie, featuring a panoramic view of the Plaisirs d'Hiver. The top floor is also a mezzanine lounge, ideal for festive celebrations and private events.
Find Winter Wonders at Plaisirs d'Hiver
Adding to its world-famous sights the Grand-Place, the Manneken Pis or the impressive Atomium, the city charms especially during the winter months during the famous Plaisirs d'Hiver Christmas Market. We recommend you start your journey at Grand Place where you can find the nativity scene and follow the lights and crowds from there. A lights show fills the square with beams of colors creating magnificent art, choirs sing and parades take to the streets. Santa makes an appearance and the overall atmosphere will sweep you up in smiles and candy canes. This event is certainly worth experiencing and will make this Christmas one to remember. So when looking for a family holiday full of wonder, or to reignite that holiday feeling, choose Brussels.
Located four minutes walking-distance from the famous Grand-Place, the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Brussels provides visitors with high-quality sophisticated accommodation. Discover the winter wonders of Brussels and the Plaisirs d'Hiver market with your friends and family during this festive season.
