Brussels’ Christmas market: De Brouckère and La Monnaie activities continue until 8 January
Although the Belgian capital’s Winter Wonders seasonal festivities come to a close on 31 December, activities in De Brouckère and La Monnaie squares have been extended until 8 January.
The prolongations enable people to continue enjoying ice skating and curling until the end of the school holidays, announced the city of Brussels.
Visitors can also take advantage of wooden chalets staying open in the squares, selling food, drink and gifts. Place de la Monnaie also boasts an après-ski village accompanying its three curling rinks.
The traditional Christmas tree and sound and light show in the Grand Place also remain in place until 8 January.
Named the world’s best Christmas market by Big 7 Travel, more than 2 million people had visited the multi-location Winter Wonders event by 18 December. In extending the festivities, Brussels might well be celebrating a record-breaking edition.
