Elected by British Tour Operators as the most original in Europe the Brussels Christmas market stretches for 2 km with a series of shops, chalets, attractions, activities and outdoor eating and drinking areas. The journey is set at the very heart of the city of Brussels and gives locals and tourists the opportunity of (re)discovering the charms of Brussels in winter, the conviviality of its inhabitants and the many seasonal traditions from around the world… allowing all to test some truly delicious delicacies and finding the perfect Christmas and New Year’s eve present for loved ones.
You will find over 200 stallholders – some of whom were there from the start – working in approximately 200 businesses. For the most part, artisan producers present novelties.
THE AUTHENTIC SWISS CHALET - New
In collaboration with the Montreux Noël team, which has organised one of Switzerland’s most enchanting Christmas markets around the Leman Lake for the past 20 years, you will discover an authentic Swiss chalet with a capacity of 150-seated guests on the spot of the Brasserie. This will no doubt prove one of this year’s edition greatest hit!
This magnificent building will be set up as a food area where visitors will be able to enjoy specialities from the Swiss terroir, including the essential fondues and raclette, as well as a plethora of other typical dishes, each accompanied with its perfect wine partner from the Lavaux and the Fendant. You can also drop by the takeaway chalet to take a bit of Switzerland on your dining table.
