The market is really beautiful, with those old and historic buildings in the center. You'll find everything you need, especially CHOCOLATES ... you can enjoy a nice walk in a lovely day. OR you may enjoy riding a carriage .... it's just nice

If you visit Bruges, it's impossible to miss seeing The Markt -- and that's fortunate. In the Spring, it is a lovely center for activities and touring. During the weeks leading up to Christmas, however, it is simply magical. The ice rink, the Christmas booths, the lighting -- all make this place truly special. You can go up in the... More

Fab Christmas market with food and drink stalls, as well as an ice skating rink. Many side streets that take you to waffle shops, and choclatier shops. Lots of attractions, restaurants and bars nearby. Aesthetically pleasing too.

I highly recommend the historium, there you can go on the balcony terrace and see the market square and it's stunning. There are horse and carriage rides, plenty of food and drink choices and amazing sights.

We visited Brugge for the Christmas Shopping, i thought the Market was poor and was only full of drink and sausage stalls, smelt of fried food and sweet drinks not that appetising, the ice rink was good and the the square is always great for Cafes/Restaurants and people watching.
