      Lille & Ghent Christmas Markets
Lille & Ghent Christmas Markets

With its crisp winter weather, story book scenery, molten hot chocolate and postcard-perfect Christmas markets, there are few places that carry off festive celebrations quite as well as Belgium. The vibrant city of Ghent is full of charm, history, culture, gastronomy, eclectic art galleries and inviting cafes that spill onto twinkling medieval squares. Throw a French fancy in there, too - get into the festive spirit in the build up to Christmas. The city of Lille really knows how to do Christmas and is the place to do some Christmas shopping! A Ferris Wheel turns on the main square, which is transformed into a winter wonderland, dominated by an 18-meter high Christmas tree. The 83 wooden chalets of the Christmas market offer Christmas decorations and festive food, as well as arts and crafts.
