“Lots to do and see”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Xmas market although there was a slight disappointment, was very much like the German markets you get in your local high street, the belfry and the town hall was stunning and the ice skating was fun

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Absolutely beautiful in the day and night. Beautiful architecture and Christmas lights everywhere you look.

Restaurants and cafés are most expensive here €10 for 2x coffees in one place we went! Travel a bit further away from square for a bit better prices.

As people travel from all over the world to visit the Christmas Market, I was quite disappointed that the stalls were expensive and limited in numbers.

Ice rink in December. Very pretty with Christmas lights.

“Very good”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

The markt is a great place to visit in Brugge, it is in the centre and around it has many restaurants, cafe's and souvenir shops to look around. We didn't eat here because we were unsure if the food would be good, just because it was in the centre. You can also get a horse and carriage ride from here.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

The central market has an ice skating rink in November and December for the Christmas market, the atmosphere is very Christmasy. The street lighting was great and the surrounding shops made good efforts. The Christmas Market stalls were a little disappointing and expensive.
