Open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm
Bruges is probably the most atmospheric of all Christmas markets. It practically oozes seasonal cheer and that warm, fuzzy, Christmassy feeling that takes you straight back to being a child, waking up to an overflowing stocking at the end of your bed. From the intoxicating scent of warm, fresh waffles to the twinkling fairy lights reflected in the canal, Bruges is hard to beat for a fairy-tale Christmas break. And that's before you've even hopped aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a snow-dusted tour of the cobbles.

We've just returned from the Bruges & Brussels Classic Tour and would like to thank everyone at Scenic & Continental Car Tours for the professional way this event was organised. My wife and I very much enjoyed this long weekend and I would especially like to mention the hard work that Eddy Lepez and his wife put into looking after us, they make the whole experience feel that much more personal.

You'll find the main market in Grote Markt, with its pretty, wooden chalets surrounding a glittering ice rink, where skaters swish and stumble in the shadow of the 83m-high belfry. If you can face the 366 steps to the bells at the top, you'll be rewarded with stunning views of the chocolate box city below.
There's another market in smaller, tree-lined Simon Stevinplein, but with no shortage of cheery chocolatiers and cosy cafés en route, the short walk might take longer than you'd expect…
If you've over-indulged, a brisk walk in nearby Minnewater will help blow away the cobwebs and work up an appetite for the next course: a plate of warm, crisp kroketten made with shrimp or gorgeously oozing cheese. Perfect for a quick pit-stop before the serious business of shopping begins.
