“Very pretty”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

I was in Bruges during advent so that meant that the Christmas Markets were occupying The Markt and a number of other squares in the city.

It's a lovely place to just wander around.

“beautiful, check it out in the evening”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

It was not very crowded first thing in the morning and then picks up as the day progresses. We went for a walk around Bruges in the evening when it was dark and it was a quiet ad beautiful place. All the buildings are lit up and a sight to see. Definitely worth visiting at least once in the evening. There are lots of restaurants around the square, but they are more expensive than on surrounding streets. You can purchase a carriage ride from the square as well that takes you throughout the centre of town.

“Christmassy Feelings!”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Being there at the end of November, we were delighted to see the Christmas Market, complete with ice-rink. We sipped on some Gluwein and bought some beautiful decorations as gifts. We returned in the evening for ice skating, and it was very romantic and really great fun!
