Starting Friday 22nd November 2019 and ending Sunday 5th January 2020. One of Europe´s most cozy Winterfairs or X-mas fairs. Situated mostly on the Grote Markt and the Simon Stevin plein you are surrounded by hundreds of thousands of small lights decorating and painting hundreds of (already nice looking) houses and buildings in waterfalls of colors and ambiance.
Enjoy the smell of waffles and gluhwein and eat your sausage with sauerkraut. Enjoy the Christmas and winter spirit and buy that one special article you always wanted to buy.
Experience the enchanted glow of Christmas in Bruges as never before! Two special illuminated walks will lead you through the magically lit city, with surprises at every turn with dynamic light installations, atmospheric lighting and projections. It is both a contemporary experience and a glimpse of Bruges’ rich history and vision for the future. Alternating organic and natural displays of light are projected onto gables, trees and benches, allowing the viewer to experience Bruges from a whole new perspective. There are two illuminated walks: 1) Stationsplein to ’t Zand via the Albertpark and 2) Stationsplein to Minnewaterpark. You can also enjoy the unique light displays on the Markt. Daily 15.30 - 23.59 between 22 November 2019 and 6 January 2020.
Over 20.000 world wide visitors will be attending the XIII edition of Bruges Beer Festival. Tents are set up on Grote Markt and Burg and the Stadshallen will also be used to bring you an
estimated 60 breweries presenting close to 500 beers (estimation).
Entrance is free. Buy your tokens, a beer guide and a degustation glass (obligatory) if you want to enter the world of real Belgian beers! Please remember this festival is about "tasting" and not about "quantity". The Saturday will be very crowded but the Sunday will be much better to visit. CHEERS!!
