Christmas Market Information


The Ghent Christmas Market is one of the best Christmas markets in Belgium, offering a variety of attractions, food and entertainment for visitors of all ages. The market is located in several squares and streets in the old town of Ghent and are connected by a walking route that passes by some of the beautiful sights in Ghent, such as the Belfry, the Cathedral, the City Hall and the Castle of the Counts. Some highlights are the ice skating rink and the Moose bar at Botermarkt, where visitors can glide on the ice and warm up with a hot drink or a snack. The Ferris wheel and the Husky bar at Korenmarkt, where visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the city and sip a mulled wine or a hot chocolate.  


The market is in two main squares: Grote Markt and Simon Stevinplein.  Grote Markt features wooden chalets selling Christmas items and local food, with an ice rink and a large Christmas tree as central attractions. Simon Stevinplein offers a less crowded market with crafts and carnival games.  The historic backdrop creates a unique atmosphere, while local Belgian cuisine provides a delightful culinary experience.  Visitors can also find unique gifts and crafts made by local artisans.  Ice skating opportunities are available in the main square near Lake of Love, Minnewater. The Bruges Christmas Market offers a variety of local Belgian treats. Visitors can indulge in Belgian waffles, frites, beers and hot chocolate, so a great opportunity to taste Belgian cuisine.  It also presents an enchanting fairytale-like atmosphere, with the historic buildings filled with holiday lights.
