Christmas time in Bruges..

Hey there,

Am thinking of heading to Bruges this weekend, has anybody been this time of year? It was just a small question, but wondered if the Christmas lights will be on etc.. i know the Market doesn't start until next weekend...

Any info would be much appreciated!

Thank you.

Hi,

Well, officially the lights go on at the start of the X-mas market (23 November), but yesterday evening some streets had theirs X-mas lights turned on and the X-mas market decorations were on as well. So it's already a little X-massy.

November has been very calm for now. Few tourists in the streets, it's wonderful to walk around in the city these days. Weekend is always a little busier than on weekdays, but you'll still have enough possibilities to carelessly wander around.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to use the forum or contact one of the DE's personally.

Kind regards,

Sabrina
